Networking Best Practices to Land the Job and Career You Want

Monday, January 25, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Networking Best Practices to Land the Job and Career You Want

Building and leveraging a network of mutually beneficial career relationships is easier than you may think. And having this network of relationships is crucial in today’s challenging environment, where being good at your job is simply not good enough, or where applying to lots of jobs is an inefficient way to job-search. In this webinar, you will learn strategies and techniques that will help you to build a network of relationships that will advance your career. You'll leave this webinar with specific action items and resources that you can use immediately to help you reach your career goals. In particular, we’ll cover:

  • Who’s really in your network – it’s much broader than you may think!
  • How your "pitch" can create exciting new opportunities within interviews an informational meetings, or at work
  • How to proactively take stock of the crucial relationships that are key to your career success, and then address gaps
  • How to easily keep in touch, the essence of true networking
  • How to tap into the "hidden job market" and land meetings with important decision-makers who you don't know (or just met)
  • Under-used yet highly effective ways to leverage your LinkedIn network for career opportunities

About the Women's Initiative Network (WIN)

The Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) is forming to engage Montclair State’s nearly 85,000 alumnae in the intellectual, cultural and educational life of the University. We are looking to form a vibrant community of alumnae and friends to inspire and empower women to become leading volunteers and visionary donors.

The objective of the group is to increase the number of women meaningfully engaged in University programs, empower the next generation of leaders and strengthen ties between and among alumnae and the University through a strong network of women committed to supporting Montclair State.

If you are interested in joining the network or serving on the planning committee, please complete this brief survey to tell us a little bit about yourself, your interests and thoughts on developing future activities.
