There are few things that confuse professionals more than networking. 
•       Extroverts think networking is collecting business cards at happy hours.
•       Introverts think it’s about selling out to the extroverts who like to collect business cards.
•       Job seekers think it’s about sending out a million resumes to everyone they’ve ever met asking people to give them a job.
•       That girl you knew back in high school thinks it’s about messaging people she hasn’t seen in years to tell them they’d be “just perfect for her team!” in the MLM she just joined.
Those things might be networking, but they aren’t effective networking. 
Effective networking is about exactly one thing: Relationships.
Join Diana Alt to learn about what effective networking really is, and how to network properly in different contexts such as job searches, conferences, and networking events.

Networking is a highly beneficial activity for individuals looking for a job, as well as those who are happily employed. Why? Because networking is about connecting and building rapport with others to help advance professional goals, engaging in continuous learning and development, and being part of a community related to your professional interests. If you are not in the habit of networking, this webinar will provide the information to get you started. We will discuss how to find networking groups and opportunities, what to consider when choosing groups/events, and a couple best practices for attending your first event.

This session will be presented by Chelsea Derr and Erica Woods, our Apex Career Coach and Manager of Contractor/Candidate Programs!
