Does the idea of networking make you super anxious? When you hear the word “networking” do you shudder? Do you feel all these things but want to do it anyways? Well this event is for you! This is an event for folks who hate networking but want to practice with fellow people who hate networking. Supportive environment to practice new skills in a safe(r) space!
In this workshop, we will explore networking basics in academia and learn how to maximize the opportunities to engage in networking events and practices that will benefit your career. We will focus on networking at academic and professional conferences, work search strategies to increase your network and effective social media uses to actively engage with those in your network and more widely share your accomplishments.
Understanding your personality preferences and how these can relate to various work roles can help you make informed choices. NOTE: Instructions for completing the TypeFocus personality assessment will be sent to you in advance of the workshop. Please complete this activity prior to attending the workshop.
