Monday, June 24th (2pm ET): How to find people to network with

Networking is one of the most important aspects of your job search — it can be the difference between landing a job quickly and applying to hundreds of jobs without success. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to find the RIGHT people to network with, and strategies for building your professional network in North America.

Tuesday, June 25th (2pm ET): Networking & informational interviews

Informational interviews are one of the best ways to expand your network and hone your industry knowledge and skills. Yet 50% of graduate students have never even heard of an informational interview.
