Effective One-on-One Networking for International Students/Postdocs

Webinar and in-classroom session by Judy Shen-Filerman and Dr. Melina Gehring

The most impactful networking occurs one-on-one. For international students, however, engaging individuals in positions of authority can be difficult, let alone conversing and selling to them.

This session focuses on: how to make contact; phases of a networking conversation; how to engage socially; how to showcase your key qualities and ask appropriate questions during the conversation; following up after the meeting. One-on-one networking is, without a doubt, the most difficult and challenging job search skill for international students to develop and master.
