As interviewing and hiring efforts become more reliant on advanced technology, the importance of networking continues to grow. Many people may be intimidated by networking because they associate it with having to be pushy or stepping outside their comfort zone.
If you are one of those people who get nervous about the prospect of networking, the first thing you must do is change your mindset. It’s important to remember that networking can be a natural process and doesn’t only happen at formalized school or business events.
Industry events, conferences and professional associations are great places to publicize your career desires and personal strengths while looking for professional opportunities. You can also utilize the various technology platforms that promote and foster professional networking.
CTU can help you design a networking action plan and share with you suggestions on how to improve your networking efforts.
Networking to find a mentor who can guide and support you along your personal career path is a critical piece of an effective career action plan. Professionals who are new to a field may have difficulty navigating their career development simply due to lack of experience. However, a mentor who is already successful in that field can partner with you to help make the choices that can improve your career.
The best mentors share your work values and are open to helping you learn from their own experience. They are honest, knowledgeable, and effective communicators who are willing to devote the appropriate amount of time and effort to provide true professional guidance. A good mentor helps you set personal career goals and assists you in scripting the critical moves to achieve them.
A valued mentor relationship is mutually beneficial for both participants.
CTU can help guide you in recruiting a mentor to fit your individual career needs.
CTU cannot guarantee employment, salary, or career advancement.
