While many of us dread the very thought of it, networking is critical to career advancement.
Whether you are looking for your first job in a new sector, or seeking out your next challenge, putting yourself out there in-person is the most effective way to make valuable new connections and sell yourself outside of your CV.
Executive career coach Shana Montesol Johnson joins Devex to discuss the do’s and don'ts of networking and explain why it doesn’t have to be the uncomfortable and awkward experience many of us fear it will be.
By joining us for this Devex Career Webinar, you will learn:
- How to reframe your approach to networking
- Tips for connecting in ways that play to your natural strengths
- Strategies for developing an effective networking plan
