Networking is not meeting someone at a conference and never speaking to them again. Rather, networking is a spectrum of activities that fosters a win-win partnership and lasts the life of the two parties. In this fun workshop, learn the secrets of being a master networker – how to cultivate strategic, mutually beneficial relationships, find people to add to your networks, “work a room,” start conversations with people you have never met before, and obtain information that can set you on a path to career victory. Most importantly, learn how networking can give you access to hidden jobs and game-changing opportunities that enable you to land or even create your dream job from scratch!
