Strategic Networking

Networking is the single most powerful and important strategy in the job-search process.

Join us for a practical and lively presentation on how to build your professional network and leverage it in the job-search. Learn about the psychology of networking and overcoming common networking mistakes. Get tips on how to structure a networking meeting for maximum benefit.
