Are you ready to jump start your career in 2019? If you're serious about striving towards the goals you set for yourself in 2019, then boosting your networking skills should be high on your list of priorities. It's no secret that networking is a cornerstone to advancing your career, but what makes for good networking? Is it simply connecting with people and hoping they can help us in some way? Probably not. When it comes to effective networking, hope is not a good strategy. Networking needs to be strategic, tactical and intentional.
Join us for this educational workshop as we learn a variety of networking techniques, including:
- Leveraging LinkedIn as a networking tool
- Internal networking (how-to)
- External networking (where-to)
- Identifying relevant networking events
- Crafting your networking message
- Creating a customized networking plan
- Pre/post-event networking strategies
