Hub Workshop: The Essentials of Networking

Why network? Career networking is an important way to learn more about fields you’re interested in, find new opportunities, and advance your career. In fact, LinkedIn reports that 61% of professionals agree that regular online interaction with their professional network can open up possible job opportunities. We’ll cover the essentials of how to introduce yourself, grow authentic connections, and build an active network.

This hour-long workshop will consist of a live virtual discussion led by Hub coaches, ways to approach conversations with others, examples of things to say while networking, individual work time, and an introduction to LSA Connect— the college’s career networking and mentoring platform.

A liberal arts and/or sciences (LSA) student
New to networking or hoping for some additional pointers
Torn between career paths or wanting to explore your career interests
Seeking tips on how to introduce yourself to professionals in industries you’re interested in exploring
Looking to form long-lasting connections with potential mentors

What you’ll gain by attending:
Learn about the overarching purpose and goals of networking
Discuss your concerns around networking and strategize on how to address them
Identify what networks you already have access to and who you want to connect with
Brainstorm effective introductory messages to grow your network
