There’s a common misconception that networking is only done in a professional context, like networking events or LinkedIn. However, your interactions with others can be viewed as networking — it's easier than you think!
Why is networking important?
Your connections with peers, colleagues, supervisors, family, and friends can be extremely valuable in your career growth. You can use your network to:
Help you find hidden opportunities
Meet more people in fields you may be interested in
Help you learn about industries/company culture before you apply
Get one-on-one help with your career exploration, planning your future or the job search by talking to a career development specialist. You can book an appointment with them on Elevate or drop in during available hours.
