Overview: Everyone who has ever looked for a job knows the value of "networking." But how many people can do it well? And what if boozy night-time "mixers" just aren't your thing? If you've been struggling to build your network as a woman, a minority, or just an introvert, come hear this collection of microtalks from women who have built broad networks of contacts despite the odds. Each speaker will cover a different angle, such as: Networking at Work: How to make the most of your work relationships, both day-to-day, and as they disperse to new companies and opportunities. Networking Online: How to make the best use of online tools and apps to discover and secure career opportunities. Networking at Conferences: How face-to-face networking lets you build communities that will reinforce supportive behaviors. Creating Your Own Networking Events: How to create networking events and opportunities in your own community.
