Networking/Career Fairs

Networking is hard. We get it. It takes guts to put yourself out there. But, the Office of Career and Professional Development can help!

What is networking?
Networking is the act of establishing connections with peers, industry leaders, professors, etc.for the purpose of adding and expanding your professional circle.

Why is networking important?
It helps you hear tips and gain advice from industry leaders and peers. Networking is a mutual relationship; the advise recipient gains valuable information to aid in their career planning and the advice giver is able to give back to their community in a meaningful way.

  • 4 Tips for Networking

    1. Learn about who you are and what you want. Create an elevator pitch with basic information like your name, major, career interest(s).
    2. Find out ways to network. Build a LinkedIn page with a professional photo and your resume. Become part of an organization or club to meet like minded people and add to your experiences.
    3. Make sure your documents are ready. Have your resume updated and reviewed so it’s ready to be sent to a contact, if needed.
    4. Practice! Networking is a skill. The more you do, the less awkward it can be.
