Making New Connections: Networking Strategically
This talk helped participants find ways to make networking work for them. Many people have negative impressions of networking, but by being strategic about meeting people, networking can become easier. We discussed the myths and realities surrounding networking and different strategies for networking including: informational interviewing, attending conferences, participation in professional societies, and social networking websites. We also discussed some of the nuts and bolts of networking including: proper etiquette, business cards, elevator pitches, and following up with contacts. Participants had a chance to practice their handshakes and elevator pitches as well as brainstorm questions to ask in informational interviews.
Whether youve got a job interview scheduled or youre just starting to think about the job search process, its never too early to start thinking about how to best present yourself to employers. In this workshop, we walked through every step of the interviewing process from initial phone interviews to preparing for the big day to following up with your interviewers. Attendees learned about what employers want to see from job applicants and what job applicants should ask about during an interview. After the workshop, attendees were prepared to ensure their job interviews are great conversations with potential employers.
