Description

YMCA Newcomer Information Centre invites you to a series of workshops: Connecting Dots to Employment - Nurture Your Network Workshop VII.

Nurture Your Network is the seventh workshop in Connecting the Dots to Employment, a pre-employment workshop series that exposes you to different considerations during your job hunt, other than your resume and cover letter. The series will help you explore your own assets while understanding your tolerance for change; you will learn about the inner workings of the workplace while acquiring new tools for communicating with others. You will recognize your uniqueness and learn how to make online platforms work for you.

Do you find it difficult or boring to network with other people? Not everyone enjoys networking or knows how to do it well. But, if you can develop a good strategy on how to make connections with people that can benefit your personal, professional or academic goals, your confidence will grow and soon socializing with others will become easy.

Topics include:

  • What is networking? What are the benefits?
  • Developing a strategy that works for you
  • Conversation starters and bridging statements
  • Building your network
  • Identifying your network

Registration is required.
