Networking: The Best Way to Find Employment!

Networking was, and still is, the number one way to find the right job. Based on the reality of the “hidden” job market, networking can put you in front of people who have or know about job leads, which may not be openly posted on job sites or company websites. This workshop helps you to identify the people in your network, to prioritize their ability to offer you information, and to conduct a networking conversation.
