The Art of Networking

Co-sponsored by the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs and Alumni Career Services.


Do these things make you feel uncomfortable or awkward?

•Talking about your research to people outside of your field.
•Introducing yourself to strangers.
•Leaving a conversation.
•Shaking someone’s hand while holding a plate full of food and a drink.

If you said yes, then this workshop is for you!

In this interactive workshop participants will learn networking norms and strategies, develop a one-minute introduction and identify effective follow-up strategies.  Participants will then have an opportunity to hone their networking skills in a follow-up reception immediately following the workshop with alumns, employers, and fellow graduate students and postdocs.
