Professional Networking

Networking (building of professional relationships) is one of the most important activities that you can complete to develop your career goal and to discover employment opportunities.  A network can assist you with developing your career plan by providing valuable information about occupations within various industries.  In addition, a network of contacts can provide job leads on positions that are never advertised to the public.
