Networking is essential for career success, and it is always valuable to start building and fostering meaningful relationships with professionals by attending networking events. Whether in person or virtual, these events share a goal of getting individuals connected on the basis of personal and professional interests and commonalities.
Take advantage of a virtual opportunity to learn the basics of engaging in substantive conversations with professionals. You will be guided through an evening practicing your approach to communicating with individuals from diverse professional backgrounds, while sharing details of your own experiences and aspirations.
Expect to engage with a small selection of UNC professional staff, in additional to several company representatives from Credit Suisse, The Select Group, FIS Global, Novato Unified School District, and Spectrum. Even though you may not be interested in the specific companies, they’ve volunteered their time to practice and share their networking tips with you.
