Module 5: Networking

Networking is just a formal term for meeting new people and talking about various interests including work and personal goals. Networking allows you to learn more about the industry and jobs/internships you may be interested in. It is also a way to learn about opportunities that may not be public knowledge. Additionally, connections can serve as great advocates for you during the hiring process, including writing recommendations letters, referring your resume along to a hiring manager, or putting in a good word for you. Did you know 70-80% of people find jobs and internships through their connections?

Module 5 will provide you with strategies for engaging your network and introduce to resources that will help you during this process.
