Strengthening Your Professional Network online seminar with Joseph Liu

Building and maintaining your professional network is one of the most important investments you’ll make in your career. Although applying to jobs posted on company websites or job boards remains popular, in-person and virtual networking remain some of the most effective ways to uncover professional opportunities.

In this interactive workshop, a seasoned marketing professional with 10 years’ corporate experience will share useful networking principles, tips to maintain your network, and concrete ways to make the most of opportunities to build professional relationships so you can stand out and be more memorable when connecting with others face-to-face and virtually, especially during these times when in-person networking opportunities are more limited.

Joseph’s industry perspective informs his workshops and is valuable to those working in academia and this session will be specifically tailored to an academic audience.
