Career Focus @ 4…Launch Your Future…Networking for College Students!
You’re familiar with social networks, right? You add friends on Snapchat and gain followers on Instagram. Networking, in the professional sense, is similar in that you’re establishing connections with people typically in your field. The earlier you start building your network, the better. That’s why it’s important to start networking in college — before you’re even ready to enter the workforce. Our Career Focus @ 4 will be held on Thursday, March 14th at 4pm in the Hall Associates Career Center. It’s a 30 minute workshop on networking, so join us and take steps to launch your future! Call or stop by the Career Center (857-7298) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for this event. Walk-ins are also welcome!
