We all understand the overall theory of why networking is valuable, but how do you make it actually work for you in your job search?
Learn the nuts and bolts of networking: detailed, hands-on activities, scripts and procedures.
Participants will acquire personalized, minute-to-minute techniques for making their networking actually work. Key topics include:
- Where to go: locating events in your community
- How to prepare: the most overlooked step is what you do before you arrive

We don’t open the classified section to look for work any longer. If you’re going to job boards or career fairs as your only approach, that too is out of date. Learn how to find your next career opportunity in person at a mixer, meetup, or seminar. See you in the room!
