Abstract:
Building professional relationships is crucial to career success. Some estimates posit that over 80% of jobs are secured either directly or indirectly through personal networks. We will focus specifically on demystifying the informational interview and why they are important for building a professional network. This workshop will cover how to create a strong base of professional connections, as well as how to identify and successfully navigate in-person and online networking opportunities including LinkedIn and VersatilePhD.
