Does the term “networking” make you run in the other direction? Do you think of it as awkward and superficial? Are you worried that you are missing out because you don’t know how to go about it?

You'll learn practical tips on how to use networking to advance your career, expand your horizons, build lasting professional relationships, and explore new opportunities.
