How to Network - for Students and Job Seekers

I developed this presentation for a students at a technical college. These students are future job seekers. They range from right out of high school to older people on their second career. The school works hard to help them in their job search, but no matter their age, they have to take charge of their personal brand and their own career development by building their network.

I volunteered to come in and give them a quick overview of how I build a large network. And how they could use the same ideas to do it with just a few simple actions.
