We have all heard it before: “70% of jobs in the US are found through networking.” So how do you make the most of networking opportunities? How do you start? What should you say? How do you ask for the job? This is a complicated task even for Americans, but as an international student, you also have to learn and understand the cultural aspects that underpin and drive the entire process.
Our coaches can help you:
- Really understand what networking is all about. We mean knowing the expectations as well as the proper protocol and etiquette involved in networking.
- Develop a story that makes it obvious and clear to the contact who you are and what value you can bring to your next position.
- Diagnose your network (you already have one!) and understand how to break down your contacts into 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree contacts.
- Learn how to ask and what to say so you can get introduced to the right professionals in your target industries and functions.
