  • The purpose of networking
  • What networking involves (it’s broader than you think!)
  • How to build the necessary confidence and resilience to network effectively
  • How to effectively approach networking in different contexts
  • Practical tips for “in person” networking (including at employer events)

  • Key benefits of networking
