After Your Networking Call

Stay Engaged After Networking:

  • After networking, find your connections on a professional social media platform (i.e. LinkedIn ) to stay connected.
  • Interact with their followers, post commenters, and posts you find amusing or inspiring.
  • Keep a list of topics that your connections frequently engage with for future reference. This is helpful in case you or your connection needs a referral for a project, job, or new opportunity.

How to Set Up a Networking Call
  • Start small. Connect with your peers, teachers, family, and friends to start off.
  • Think outside the box. Try cold-emailing, especially if you're searching for a job. It will be jarring at first due to a large amount of rejections or no replies, but as a result, it will become easier to present yourself via email or at in-person events.
  • Make the first move. You miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take, so take them.
