Russell Library Job and Career presents
Networking in the New Normal
Connecting and Thriving in the Post-pandemic World of Work
with Kathy McAfee, America's Marketing Motivator
Monday, June 21, 2021 from 11:30am-1:30pm EDT
Everyone knows that networking is essential part of the job search process. In fact, studies continue to confirm that the lion share of professional positions and jobs are secured through networking and referrals, not job boards. But during the pandemic, job seekers have been limited in their ability to do in-person networking and interviewing. We’ve all had to learn new skills and to get more comfortable with virtual networking and interviewing. How can you leverage these new abilities in order to stand out and secure new opportunities as we enter into the “new normal”?
In this special virtual session at Russell Library, you will gain insights, inspiration and motivation to help you network and connect in the post pandemic work world. In this nuts-and-bolts session, you’ll gain networking tips and tricks to help you be more successful in your job search and beyond, including how to:
Be more fearless and intentional when your network
Get more comfortable and confident when you network virtually
Communicate more concisely who you are and what you are seeking
Power up your video presence and project confidence and professionalism on Zoom
Turn new contacts into meaningful connections more quickly
BONUS: Everyone show attends the virtual program will be gifted a digital copy of Kathy’s book, Networking Ahead: Get where you want to go by making powerful, professional connections
