Venue: King's Gate L1.20

17.8% of graduates find their first job because of someone they know. However, approaching a potential contact, whether that is a friend of a friend or a future employer, whether face-to-face or online, can be a daunting process. What is the best way to make that important first impression? How can you build on that meeting? This 30 minute workshop will suggest a number of practical tips on how best to impress your contacts as well as techniques in finding and building your network through face-to-face and online tools such as LinkedIn and Graduate Connections.

We want our services to be accessible to our students and graduates. Please get in touch if you have any specific requirements e.g. an alternative format, communication support, or other adjustment, in order to access our workshop/event.
