So, this “networking” thing I always hear about…
I’m so glad you asked. It’s only one of the best resources for career development and professional success. A good network can provide job leads, possibilities for advancement, and opportunities for personal improvement. NBD.

Here a few tips for doing it right:
  1. Look for the right people. Reach out to the people who can provide you with the specific help you need. Not sure where to start? Man. Wish there was an office to help.
  2. Be proactive. Cultivating your network year-round is crucial to maintaining beneficial connections.
  3. Use your resources. It has actually become easier to maintain a professional network due to technology.
  4. Seek out networking events. Socializing in person (or virtually) is still your best chance of creating a successful network. If only there was an office providing mock and real opportunities to network with alumni and employers. Wouldn’t that be fantastic? I bet the people organizing it would be cool too.
