Let's Reconnect: How to Leverage Your Existing Professional Network to Make a Career Transition Post-Pandemic
Does networking make you cringe? If you know that networking is important when making a career transition, but just don't know how or where to start, then this session is for you.
This session will share what you absolutely need to have before you begin reaching out to your contacts. You will be able to identify the two types of contacts you should prioritize. You will leave with scripts for precisely what to say during your outreach so that you won't get ignored.
