A Practical Guide

Networking is an important career planning strategy that the Career Resource Center can help you develop. Through networking you can research career options and learn about job and internship opportunities. Obtaining jobs by only applying to positions that are advertised online or through on-campus recruiting limits your job prospects and chances for success. Additionally, since recruitment firms and online referral services are expensive, most managers will start their search by asking fellow employees if they know good candidates. If you come to mind because you have effectively networked, you will have a greater chance of being considered for positions that are never even posted.
