Networking skills

Title

5 steps to seriously improve your networking skills

Introduction

Whatever question you have in the careers context, the answer is usually networking.

Very few people like the idea of ‘networking’, it brings to mind awkward drinks parties where senior people are expecting you to make sparkling conversation with outstanding new insights.

Aim

Use your research skills to find out everything there is to know about the labourmarket outside academia!

Intended for

Academics who like to improve their networking skills

Content

Form genuine contact with current practitioners and your applications will improve dramatically. You will demonstrate motivation, particularly if you are trying to persuade an employer outside academia to take a chance on you. Your academic prowess will not always be enough to get you to interview stage. You must demonstrate that you are well informed about the sector, the employer and the skills they are seeking. This will help you to convince them that you are genuinely interested in changing your career and haven’t just run out of options in academia.
