A major career skill one needs to have as a professional is to be able to network with finesse. Alumni Relations and the Career Center are proud to host Networking Live to help Illinois State students learn practical tips on how to network effectively, to make a positive and professional impact, and to feel more confident in social and business network settings. Best of all, students will have an opportunity to practice these skills in a safe setting with Illinois State alumni from various majors as well as Career Center and Alumni Relations staff.

“Personal branding is a critical component of any career. It requires using a combination of technology and resources that will increase visibility and awareness as a candidate,” said Career Center Senior Assistant Director Maureen Roach.

Students attending this event can expect to learn how to introduce themselves using a 30-second commercial, as well as business etiquette skills, like how to manage holding a glass and a plate of food while networking.
