Langue EN Workshop language is English

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?
In this highly interactive, practical workshop, we will explore the benefits and techniques of networking for professional development. We will examine the skills involved in engaging with others in different environments such as the academic conference, the informational interview outside academia, or on professional networks.

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.
