The importance of interpersonal and networking skills for career development”

Share

Most young scientists and engineers know that networking is important for success, whether in their research or career, but many still find the mere word off-putting. For many, the thought of stepping into a room full of strangers and striking up forced, superficial conversations over wine and cheese cubes feels icky and can produce anxiety.This event goal is to help early career researchers and PhD students to leverage their interpersonal and networking skills in their career development. Good networking requires a genuine conversation about your interests, those of the other person, and how they may benefit each other. Getting to the point where networking is a pleasure instead of a chore, however, may not be easy. It often takes skill, and practice, to start enjoying and reaping the benefits of networking. This event goal is to help early career researchers and PhD students to leverage their interpersonal and networking skills in their career development.
