As a follow-up to the "Identifying and Developing the Mentorship you Need" workshop last semester, this workshop will cover practical networking strategies. Thoughtful preparation can go a long way to increasing the benefit from networking opportunities. During this workshop we will discuss how to effectively network and learn about the positive career impact of building local, regional, and national networks.
