Career Center Tips: How to Network Online

Posted October 10, 2011
Tags Networking

"Everyone is always telling us to network – that most jobs are found via word of mouth and through personal connections.  Back when our parents were our age, networking meant something very different than it does now.  It was face-to-face, handshakes, business cards swapped and put into rolodexes.  Maybe someone knew someone and could introduce you.  Sometimes there were drinks involved.  It was a socially-based thing.  As society has moved to being more automated and online, networking has changed and morphed, and we have to learn to work our networking skills both online and in person."
