Intelligent Networking (CS #72)

Most people think about networking as a dreadful, soul sucking exercise that requires you to attend endless events and conferences, looking for ways to deliver your “elevator pitch” to strangers who might be able to connect you to a job.

But fear not! There’s a better way.  Intelligent networking is about engaging effectively with who you already know to conduct a Networked Job Search. It’s about leveraging your connections to get access and introductions to those who can get you closer to your goal. In this session, we'll introduce you to the components of a Networked Job Search that will enable you to be intentional in your career management and get closer to opportunities that are a better fit for you.
