Presenter: Jayne Mattson
Location: Northeastern University | Curry Student Center
As Career Professionals, we know that the definition of networking is about building relationships for information, advice and contacts. There are many articles about how to develop a network, what you need to ask for advice or information, and the importance of building a stronger network. There is an assumption that everyone knows how to build relationships.
Too often however, networkers focus on themselves and what they need, not asking enough questions about their contact.
In Jayne’s recently published book You, You, Me, You, The art of Talking to People, Networking and Building Relationships, she focuses the attention on how to develop relationships first before you even begin to reach out to others for help. Jayne is going to guide us through her concept, so we can help our clients become better relationship builders for a successful career transition.
