Networking is much more than collecting business cards and talking about projects. Networking is about finding common ground, following up and investing time to build mutually beneficial professional relationships.
But why network?
- The Wall Street Journal recently estimated that “80 per cent of available jobs aren’t publicly advertised.”
- “Offline” face-to-face networking is still a more effective way to make those key connections and potentially advance your career.
- Employers are commonly more inclined to hire people they know.
- It’s fun!
Our panel of professionals will include an industry representative from LinkedIn, a ‘super connector’ and other networking experts. They will discuss the value of personal, face-to-face networking in the Information Age and explain what you can do to make the most of your networking opportunities and stand out from the crowd!
….also you can apply what you’ve learned during the wine and cheese networking reception following the presentation!
