Networking skills are essential to every job search. On average, only one-third of job opportunities are advertised—most positions are filled through word of mouth and personal referrals. This interactive course will teach the art and science of networking and allow you to practice networking skills in the comfort of a classroom setting. You will learn a systematic approach to networking either in preparation for a current job search or to keep your network robust. You will also learn the difference between welcome and unwelcome networking and be able to detect situations where networking is a welcome gesture to the hiring manager. At the conclusion of this lecture, you will have a structured personal networking framework and other job-searching techniques that will increase odds of landing your dream job. Led by a top executive, in charge of recruiting for a Fortune 100 company who has helped scores of professionals and C-suite executives with their job searches, this evening will help you with your career development.
