This webinar is an opportunity for members of the higher education, postdoctoral and research communities to learn about effective networking from an insider in the postdoctoral and postgraduate fields. We will dissect both online and in-person networking, an important component of successful career building at all career stages. Not only is it important to develop a network, but it also takes time to manage your network. We will dive deeper into how to effectively manage your network while balancing other time consuming academic obligations.
This webinar will also cover topics such as how to identify the appropriate career advocates, initiating interactions with these colleagues, and finally, how to build long-term communication with individuals who may enhance your career.
