“The activity of meeting people who might be useful to know, especially in your job”
Looking for work can be a daunting prospect, whether you are looking for your first job or find yourself back in the job market after a number of years. Whilst there are many practical things you will need to master, one of the most important skills you can learn is the art of networking.
We were very fortunate that Oliver English (07-12) and Nigel Aylwin-Foster (64-74) were able to join us for our first Career Skills talk on 27th November to share their experiences and explain how networking has helped them. Both at different stages in their careers, they gave some great examples of where networking has helped progress their careers and how it has become embedded in their everyday lives. They reassured us that we should not be afraid to approach people and ask for help, but also how important it is to offer help to others.
If you would like to find out how networking can help you in your career, and in everyday life, then watch the recording of the talk below.
Don’t forget to sign up to our next FREE Careers Skills Talk on Tuesday 1st December, which will focus on Working with Recruiters, CVs, Job Applications and Interview Techniques, to help you to land that perfect job.
