Workshop: How to network for a new job
August 26 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM$25 – $40
Tapping the hidden job market through networking takes more planning and nerve than searching for a new job online, but it’s much more effective. If you are doing it right.
Being open to connecting and helping others – in good times and bad – can give you valuable connections in your chosen field, help you stay focused and motivated during your job search and give you the job of your dreams.
Networking does, however, make a lot of people nervous. What is my story? Should I be honest, and tell everybody that I need a new job? Should I be strictly professional, or is it ok to talk about my dog? When do I continue to the next person?
The workshop – How to network for a new job – has been designed to address those specific concerns and more. You’ll leave this event not only having a game plan for your future networking experiences but also feeling more confident in yourself and your ability to make meaningful connections that will help you out in your future career.
In this workshop you’ll learn to:
- Ease anxiety around networking
- Initiate and carry on conversations
- Establish contacts with the persons that are right for you
- Present yourself in a warm and friendly way
- Get the most out of networking events
- And a lot more
Are you ready to kick off the fall with a new superpower of connecting with people? Reserve your spot now! Space is limited.
Cost: Members $25 Non-members $40
