In today's world, without knowing the "who", you will never have the opportunity to prove your "what." Participants of this class will learn how to get strategic about fully enlisting their personal (friends and family), professional (coworkers) and strategic (mentors, executives) contacts to identify opportunities and land job prospects.

To help find and further establish these critical personal, professional and strategic contacts, this two-hour workshop will focus on:

  • What is networking?
  • Why is networking important?
  • Who are your target contacts?
  • How to build your contact list with tools and techniques
  • Making first contact (introductions and meetings)
  • Closing on opportunities
  • Managing the continuous growth and maintenance of your strategic network
Upon completion of the two-hour workshop, participants will:
  • Walk away, fully grasping how critical networking is to their long term professional success
  • Acknowledge that establishing mutually beneficial relationships is key to identifying and seizing
  • opportunities
  • Have the tools and techniques, that, with time and practice, will help them build their strategic contact list
