NCBiotech Jobs Network: Connecting Biotech Talent to Opportunity
Next Event: 12:30 p.m. June 24
Networking: A New Mindset
The workforce of the 21st century is changing. Success comes to those who compliment a deep education with challenging experiences and a rich web of professional relationships. Unfortunately, the task of building and maintaining a powerful network of professional relationships is often overlooked. Many people struggle to do it well, if at all. The good news is that networking doesn’t have to be hard, and the key skills to be successful at it are easily learned.
There is much more to networking than noisy “networking events” and the gratuitous exchange of business cards. In this presentation we redefine networking in a way that makes it easy, natural, and deeply effective. We learn how to simplify your approach to networking while building powerful personal and professional connections that can last a lifetime. Along the way we’ll polish our elevator pitch with answers to the questions “What do you do?” and “What are you working on?” You will acquire simple and useful tools and techniques that will empower you to create and maintain a great network.
