WORKSHOP: Nonstop Networking – Using Self-Promotion in Everyday Settings

Although more than 70% of jobs are obtained through networking, many people find it to be one of the most challenging aspects of their job search. STEM Career Services believes that networking is an ongoing process and not something done only at networking events or at professional meetings and conferences. Networking is a communication skill that must be practiced in order to gain comfort and proficiency. This workshop reveals our proven techniques for becoming more comfortable networking, for identifying networking opportunities and incorporating them into daily activities, and for effectively communicating technical and nontechnical skills to the right people.

As a supplement to this workshop, STEM Career Services will conduct private one-on-one or small group networking skills sessions with participants to help them feel more confident about what skills and experiences to share with people; to help them practice discussing their value in a variety of settings; and to help them practice talking with, and engaging, a diverse group of stakeholders.
