IGS: Networking for International Students

September 6, 2023 - 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Atkins 146

Are you familiar with the saying, "it's not what you know, it's who you know"? In the US, connections with people carry a lot of weight when looking for a job. This is why networking is a fundamental skill for launching and furthering your career. However, when we hear the word "networking," we often think of "doing lunch," selling ourselves, and handing out business cards. If we changed the word to “connecting,” we might feel better about it. Your job search begins with the people you know! Never underestimate their knowledge and influence. Most people really enjoy helping one another when they can. Therefore, if you ask someone for help or information, most people will gladly provide it. This session is designed specifically for international students.
