Networking

Networking is more than handing out a business card or sending an email, it is the confidence to introduce yourself, engaging in two-way conversation, and being committed to keeping up with your new connections. Networking can happen in person or online, and can happen formally, such as by attending a networking event, or serendipitously, like meeting someone in an elevator. Connector NL is a formal networking program, where we put a Connectee in a strategic networking session with a Connector, however knowing how to handle the expected and unexpected networking situation is important. The best way to learn about networking is to get out there and network; here are a few resources to help you along:
