Hub Workshop: The Essentials of Networking

Hub Workshop: The Essentials of Networking

What is networking? Why do professionals tout it as critical to professional exploration and growth? 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. This hour-long workshop, we’ll cover the essentials of how to introduce yourself, grow authentic connections, and build an active network before you graduate.

This live virtual discussion led by a Hub coach will cover ways to approach conversations with employer reps, recruiters, alums, and other professionals; examples of things to say while networking; and an introduction into LSA Connect, the college’s career networking and mentoring platform.

A liberal arts and/or sciences (LSA) student

Seeking tips on how to introduce yourself to professionals in industries you’re interested in exploring
Wanting to build up your confidence in approaching other professionals
Looking to form long-lasting connections with potential mentors

Learn about the overarching purpose of networking and how to set goals with your efforts
Discuss your fears around networking and strategize on how to address them.
