How to Network Like Your Life Depends on In (Cause it Does!)

435

Published on

This presentation was used for the #SSNetworking Skillshare class taught by Katie Felten of Hashable and Jodi Jefferson of Workbridge Associates.

"In this class we will demystify networking, and teach you why you should see it as fun, not a chore. Learn how to make the people you already know lead you to people you want to know, and most importantly, how to do all this effortlessly, without feeling like you're job-hunting or annoying people. We will also cover how to utilize many of the social media platforms that make connecting easier than ever. You will see how connecting people becomes second nature with a little practice, leading you to connections with people you didn't even know you were looking for and helping others along the way. Understand the importance of getting out of your office and making connections with people today that might not pay off for a year."
