Networking for Nerds: How to Create Your Dream Career

Networking is all about building win-win partnerships that last a lifetime, where both parties provide value to each other. Networking is the most important tool you have in your professional advancement toolbox because it is the only means by which you can access hidden jobs or perhaps even create your dream job from scratch. In this seminar, we will discuss what exactly networking is, and how to actually “do” networking effectively. We will also address specific networking tips you can employ at the AIChE Annual Meeting!
