How often have you found yourself saying, “Yay! It’s time to build my professional network!” If you’re like most people, probably never. For many of us, networking feels like a big scary beast you’d rather avoid. However, it doesn’t need to be that way.
In this all-new student resource webinar, Becky Siekmeier, the SciTechsperience Program Director, and Kipp Graham, a Software Guild Employer Network Manager, take on the common myths and misconceptions surrounding networking.
Their theory: networking can only intimidate you until you learn how to approach it. To do that, Siekmeier and Graham use their expertise to help dispel two common myths:
- That networking is all about going to big events to meet strangers.
- That networking is something you only need to worry about when you’re looking for a job.
Like anything, the more you know, the more empowered you’ll feel.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
- Build your network
- Use LinkedIn effectively
- And engage with others at events
