Career Tip of the Month: Begin Networking!

Obtaining the job of your dreams does not begin with the job search just before graduation. It begins now with course selection, extracurricular activities, skill-building, and part-time employment. It also begins with networking – making connections in the community, meeting potential future employers, and practicing professional communication skills. Not sure when or how to begin with networking? Plan to attend Career Services’ “Networking Nights”! Networking Nights are regular opportunities to connect with professionals from diverse career areas. You can find out more about the program at: http://www.uwgb.edu/careers/NetworkingNights.htm. Upcoming dates (and attending organizations) are listed below. Several of them are businesses, but keep in mind that many of our Psychology and Human Development students take entry-level positions in businesses as their first jobs. Please also note that local human service agencies will be on campus one evening next semester.
