Networking Workshop

Do you hate the word Networking? So do we!

Many people think networking is about how many business cards they can collect. But it is not about quantity. It is about strategically building mutually beneficial relationships.

The CSO is offering a special workshop in collaboration with Net Impact and The Word Mill on Monday, October 27 from 4:00-5:30pm in GSB 117.

Come learn how to:

  • turn acquaintances into advocates
  • talk about yourself in a way that enables others to help you
  • navigate an event with confidence (whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert!)

RSVP on CareerHub.
