We've all heard that networking in essential for your career but many of us find it awkward and aren't sure how to do it effectively. In this session you'll learn strategies for approaching networking events (ranging from academic conferences to industry events) and practice the actual conversations you might have in those settings. We'll also teach you about the best ways to conduct outreach meetings and how to maintain your professional relationships over time.
