    Your Networking Pitch

    Tuesday March 9 12:00pm-1:00pm

    Networking is how most people find jobs—not by responding to job ads alone. A network pitch (a.k.a. “elevator speech”) is a 30-second to 2-minute verbal summary about who you are, professionally speaking. A succinct yet descriptive network pitch can both engage and inform a new contact—just long enough to make them want to: keep talking with you, find out more about you, figure out if there is mutually beneficial common ground, and open doors to new opportunities. Networking can help you and another person discover if there is common ground that could be mutually beneficial. Register online.

    Professional Emails & Thank You Notes

    Wednesday March 17 12:00pm-1:00pm

    There is a convention that most people follow in the business world when it comes to writing emails. If not followed, it can leave a very bad impression. Inversely, the practice of following up with a thank you note or (even better) “a letter of influence”after an interview or job fair can leave a very good impression—if done well. Join this information session to get some tips, see some examples, and make sure that your skills, knowledge and other assets are not undermined by a lack of formality, formatting, and follow through—the 3 Fs! Register online.
