WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Each session covers a different aspect of networking for career advancement, job search and business development. If you attend all five sessions, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how to:

– overcome awkwardness, intimidation and anxiety by expanding your comfort zone,

– develop and present a compelling personal value proposition,

– plan and organize your overall strategy in light of your goals,

– build your network organically and purposefully, 

– use informational interviewing for career direction and job search,

– create shortcuts and effective communication starters, and

– follow through, when and where needed, for best results.

WHY IT MATTERS

“‘Who you know, not what you know’ has always been the ticket into the upper echelons. In today’s world, the need to network has rippled out to every single one of us. From CEO to student, we all need a strong base of support, not only to advance our careers or businesses but also to maintain the advances we have made.”
-Anne Marie Segal at Forbes.com (article forthcoming)
