How do you feel about networking?


Networking gets a bad rap. It sounds intimidating and confusing, right? In reality, networking is just building relationships and having conversations with people. That’s something you do every day! Apply that philosophy to your next networking event. Your goal can be as simple as meeting four new people and learning something new from each of them! Use these tips as you prepare for your next networking event—perhaps STEM Networking Night?

Professional Tip Block
Students always say they don't know how to network, but they really just need to surround themselves with people. It is so important to build that network, because those are the people who can make introductions for you. They can give you advice, and they can help you understand what it is like to be in a specific career. -Steve Yu '95, MBA '03
