Networking for Academics
By: Christina Olex



Networking is an important skill in our professional careers, yet many of us don't take the time to learn how to do it effectively. In this workshop, we will explore the potential opportunities and benefits from networking, some tips on how to manage the onslaught of social media, and look at ways to manage or even master the face-to-face experience at meetings and conferences. The variety of ways to engage and connect with people are endless, so we just have to figure out what works best for each of us! 

 The workshop is focused on the following skills:

  • Learning to "see" networking opportunities, and take full advantage of them
  • Getting the most from your professional network
  • Assessing your personal strengths, so that you can connect with colleagues with maximum results and minimum anxiety
  • Communicating effectively on a personal and professional level
  • Learning about different communication styles to prepare you for a diversity of working environments
  • Realizing the opportunities and limitations of online networking
  • Working with formal and informal mentors
