Program Details:

Too many view the word “networking” in a negative light and consequently miss out on professional development opportunities, contacts, and promotions. But how does one go about starting a networking program? What are the common do’s and don’ts of networking, and what is the evidence that suggests it is indeed a profitable endeavor? This session aims to address these and other topics in an interactive, discussion-led presentation.
