Building relationships and networking (whether in person or virtually) is really important in job searching and career planning. Whether this is approaching professors for a reference for grad school or reaching out to a professional in your field for a coffee chat, it all relies on being able to identify people and talk to them about your career interests and goals.
In this workshop participants will:
- Learn where and how to connect with professionals in your field of interest
- Understand best practices with regard to reaching out to and conducting coffee chats (informational interviews)
- Identify the key elements of an effective professional introduction (elevator pitch)
