Learning to love virtual networking
Networking is not only a great way to find new job opportunities, it’s an easy way to make connections with new friends and professionals who will be able to support you throughout your career journey.
SCWIST and iWIST (Island Women in Science and Technology) recently came together to host ‘Overcome Your Resistance and Embrace Virtual Networking’, an event where women in STEM could connect while brushing up on their networking skills.
During the event, participants first heard a short talk from Professional Career Coach Sue Maitland on how to craft the perfect three-part introduction before launching into breakout rooms to practice their newfound skills.
“It was my first time attending a networking event, and this event made it super approachable and fun! I had a really great time, and it makes me more inclined to network by myself [and] attend more events like these,” said one participant after the event.
“I thought the event was great and super enriching!” said another. “Great job on it.”
