Networking: this word's been said a million times before. But what does it mean? And more importantly, what does it mean to you ? Whether you’re aware of it or not, the future of your professional career depends on your ability to communicate your goals, build interpersonal relationships, and utilize your connections. Caitlin Giordano, of the Career Development Center, will guide you in building relationships in the professional world which can facilitate internships during college or job opportunities upon graduation. This valuable session will prepare you for the Speed Networking Workshop, when students will have the chance to try out your skills on volunteer WP professionals / alumni. This event is open to all majors within the College of Humanities & Social Sciences.
One critical component to landing the job you’re looking for is acquiring the ability to network and to make connections. Following up on the Networking Prep workshop, the College of Humanities & Social Science's "Speed Networking" session gives you a chance to practice how to connect to others in the professional world. Students will come up with their own elevator pitch and become comfortable introducing themselves, sharing their story, and discovering other ways to relate and "break the ice" while practicing with faculty and alumni volunteers over pizza. This workshop is casual, so there's no need to get dressed up. All Humanities and Social Sciences Majors are welcome. This workshop will prepare you for the big event - Networking Night on April 4th, 2017.
How to prepare: If you had one short window of opportunity to tell someone about yourself in order to land your dream job, what would you say? What is your story? Think about what has shaped you to be the person that you are - your adversities, accomplishments, or passions. Give yourself some time to think about it and come prepared to this networking session with a short narrative about yourself that is approximately 1-2 minutes.
So Yon Rim of Psychology will present “The Gift of Psychological Closeness: How Feasible versus Desirable Gifts Reduce Psychological Distance to the Giver."
