Always Be Networking (Career Series #91)

What is networking? Why is it important? How has networking changed as a result of the pandemic? What are the techniques for reaching out? Sarah Scudder will answer these questions.

Networking is widely known as an important activity that job seekers do. In fact over 70% of jobs are found through networking. But when is the BEST time to network and how can you make networking more comfortable for you?  A key to overcoming the fear and loathing of networking that most have, is to practice connecting a little every day, especially when you don’t need help, and there’s no deadline. Come learn how and why we all need to embrace the guiding principle: Nurture your network before you need it.
