Networking: A Tool for Exploring Careers & Building Professional Relationships
Networking is one of the most effective approaches to getting your career on the fast track. Yet, for a variety of reasons (e.g., shyness, fear of "schmoozing"), we often fail to make networking an active part of our job search - even though it's the way most people get their jobs! In this workshop, you will learn the keys to tactful networking along with easy-to-use strategies for face-to-face conversations, making email connections, and the appropriate use of social media.
