Building a Professional Network in the Digital Age

Presented By: Jeff Katra and Michael Toma
Track: Business
Session Format: Co-Presentation
Description: It has become very clear over the recent years that building a relevant professional network is important in both securing a job and starting a career. College educations are becoming more of a standard and less of a distinguishing factor amongst our peers. This has made the job market much more competitive and opportunities less abundant. It has also created a trend where intelligent college graduates believe that they need to escape to the big city in order to secure a job. The truth is that while the job market is competitive, it is not impossible. There are tons of opportunities out there, it just takes an out-of-the-box attitude and a little work to uncover them. While networking has always existed, certain tools have been created to help us stand out amongst the crowd and connect with relevant professionals in the digital space.

This session will discuss how professionals can utilize networking and digital tools such as blogging and Linkedin to help them standout in their respective careers.
