Tuesday, September 21, 1:00 – 2:00 PM
Building a diverse and supportive network has always been the most important thing you can do to ensure job security and career options. However, most people don’t like to “network” because the common form – going to events, swapping business cards, and gathering meaningless LinkedIn connections – simply doesn’t work and it is no longer effective. What’s needed is a networking strategy that focuses on building meaningful connections and creating new opportunities for your career or business. In this webinar, Marcos Salazar, Co-founder and CEO of Be Social Change, will share key online strategies and techniques for building inspiring, purposeful, and mutually beneficial relationships during this time of uncertainty.
