Networking for the 21st Century
If “who you know” plays such a big part in attaining professional success (and it does), then why is networking so difficult for most people? It doesn’t have to be. Alumni from the three University of Illinois campuses (Chicago, Springfield and Urbana) are invited to join fellow Big Ten alumni to learn how to confidently build a network of colleagues and connections that want to help you succeed.
