Networking for Academics July 19, 11:30-1

Do you think of it as awkward and superficial?

Are you worried that you are missing out because you don’t know how to go about it?

If any of these apply to you, join our expert panelists as they explain why and how to network. You’ll learn practical tips on how to use networking to advance your career, expand your horizons, build lasting professional relationships, and explore new opportunities.

  • How do networking and job-hunting fit together?
  • How can I proactively identify and reach out to people I don’t know yet?
