For individuals with 2 months to 32 years of experience, it’s a well-known fact that “networking” plays a significant role in over 75% of the jobs that are acquired. Networking is one of those activities that most job seekers don’t enjoy and, consequently, many individuals don’t make the most of their networking connections and one-on-one opportunities. Effective networking requires a combination of online research (to identify the individuals) and offline human interaction techniques that engage your audience and provide them with ways in which to help you. There are specific “dos and don’ts” of networking and those are explored though hands-on processes during this webinar. Additionally, many job seekers are timid about asking for help and that’s why an effective writing style plays a huge role in how to ask for help in a way that you actually get it from your network of contacts. I’ll show a few examples of those scripts as well and how to engage a network of people that you’ve never met. They CAN help if you know how to ask for it. And if you can’t become a successful networker, your search is likely to take a much longer time to get to your desired destination.
The following are some of the topics covered during this session:
- Where most job seekers fail in their networking efforts and why
- How to set important networking goals
- How to prepare for networking opportunities whether over the phone, via Zoom or in-person
- How to make the most of each networking encounter
- How to leverage online and offline networking tactics
- How you can make it much easier for your network to help you with key introductions
- How to create advocates inside a company that’s of interest to you.
- Scripts for gaining networking introduction via email and LinkedIn
During the last 30 minutes of this meeting, I will be creating virtual breakout rooms of 6-8 per group where each of you will have an opportunity to put what you’ve learned to use. And everyone will make some new contacts in the process while you have a real-time chance to learn from one another.
