The Professional Networking Toolbox

PASS Summit 2014 Session

There is no getting around it: your long-term career success depends on your ability to network. Networking is not difficult and, in many cases, can be quite fun. In this session, we will review of some of the tools you need to have in your networking toolbox, such as LinkedIn and other social media. You will learn about the proper use, etiquette, and handling of business cards, as well as how you locate and get the most out of events.



Additionally, we will go over some tips for small talk and conversation; protocol for following up with contacts and staying in touch with your network; tips on how to correctly handle an introduction; and how to build bridges to different networks and the value therein.



Attend this session and get the edge on leveraging networking to further your career.
