Resource Spotlight: How to Network Like a Pro

Research reveals that 85% of jobs are filled via networking, which means there very well could be connections in your network that lead to your next job. Visit the Cohen Career Center "Networking" page for more information, but here are some points to consider:

  • Your network begins with those closest to you and most invested in your success (family, friends, professional/personal acquiantences)
  • Arranging informational interviews, job shadowing, and joining professional associations all provide great opportunities to network
  • Use social media platforms like LinkedIn, and professional groups on Facebook, to connect with alumni and other professionals in your field
  • Spend time crafting, and practicing, your 20-second "elevator speech"
