Learn the Secrets of Successful Networking

Did You Know That 75 % Of All Jobs Are Gotten Through Networking?

Presented by Office of Career Services and the YC Leaders of Tomorrow Club

Five Networking Tips:

  1. What separates networking from a random conversation is “follow-up.”
  2. Networking know-how is a skill that anybody can acquire through practice.
  3. Approach the networking process with a greater sense of purpose, not just to meet a casual acquaintance.
  4. When networking opportunities are in a structured setting, like a “meet-and-greet” session, be prepared with resumes or business cards.
  5. When grabbing a networking opportunity, have an “elevator speech” ready to deliver about your job goals.
