  • Networking contacts can assist with job leads, referrals or insider information; provide information on career fields or what the job market is really like
  • Networking is not a one way street
  • Share articles and job postings with your network
  • Reciprocate the help with your network
  • Don't just contact them when you graduate or are needing a job
  • A brief email or phone call to say hello and to ask how they are doing
  • People are more willing to help when they know you

Who is your Network?

  • Professional associations
  • Professors/Staff/Labor Supervisors
  • Friends/peers
  • ...basically anyone you meet…or someone who knows someone

Where to Network?

  • In person – conferences, symposiums, meetings, parties, waiting in line at the grocery…
  • On line – LinkedIn, facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, BeKnown and many more! LinkedIn is the most widely used for professional networking. Just remember to police what you AND your contacts post online. It could reflect negatively to a potential employer. For more info on how to use LinkedIn, view this video.
  • Everywhere! Always look to build a network and remember to help others along the way.
