Networking is an extremely useful skill to have; yet often times it seems too vague to learn. The purpose of this course is to break down the idea of networking and teach the skill of professional networking, step by step. This course is aimed especially at students who come from backgrounds without existing family connections in their professional space of interest. The course is designed to equip students with the tools they need, to form and maintain professional networks. Upon the completion of the course, students will be able to navigate their professional connections in a much more sustainable way and strategically land their dream career.
