Making Connections: the hows and whys of networking
1 May 2020
|Langue||Workshop language is English|
Ann Humphry-Baker and Verity Elston
Networking is commonly acknowledged to be vital for professional development, but can be a challenge for many. How can we best make a connection with others, in person and online? What impact can it have for our careers, whether in research or elsewhere? How to maintain authenticity while we move outside of our personal comfort zones?
Participants will work on their verbal and written self-presentations, finding the right words and tone for different circumstances. The workshop is of particular interest for those working in English as a second language.
You should have attended a Career Café in advance of this workshop, or already received career development advice in another format.
This activity is organised in priority for postdocs.
