Donnell King
1 hour



Networking has a bad rap, and many faculty miss vital professional growth and mentoring opportunities as a result. In this webinar, the presenter shares a more accurate and beneficial view of networking, shows why faculty and staff should engage in networking opportunities, and briefly explains approaches and tools to foster connections in a travel-limited and isolated world. Participants leave with a practical plan for making connections while benefiting themselves and others. The presenter discusses techniques for fostering genuine conversations in any setting that will be satisfying to you as well as to the people with whom you interact. He also details the use of LinkedIn as the primary professional networking channel for academics, whether professors, administrators, or staff.

  1. Reduce or eliminate your reluctance to approach colleagues that you do not already know.
  2. Identify the most effective attitudes and approaches to networking for academics.
  3. Set up or improve a professional LinkedIn profile that will foster connections with other professionals.
  4. Identify mutually profitable connections.
