How to network when you don’t have a network
October 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Fact: studies show that up to 85% of jobs are filled through networking and referrals. But what happens if you don’t have a network, or the only people you know are academics? This interactive workshop will show you how to start building a network of professionals working in career fields that interest you. You’ll learn how to network authentically and avoid the “yuck” that can come when networking is done wrong.
This virtual workshop is designed for doctoral students, PhDs and postdocs from all academic disciplines who are wondering:
- How do I network in a way that feels genuine (rather than awkward or self-serving)?
- Where do I begin networking?
- What tools can I use to help grow my network?
- How do I approach professionals working in fields of interest when I don’t know them?
