IPC Career Advice

As students, we all should know how important networking skills are. What do you recommend for mastering networking and how to get your name out there?

“It’s a matter of being willing to craft, tell, and refine your story. Creating your story first requires a belief that people want to hear you; but understanding that not everyone will.

In trying to network and find growth opportunities (e.g. a job), your story should reflect your relevant passion(s) and what your career objectives are.

Creating affinity and a connection with your audience also requires risk taking and exposing aspects of your background so people learn something about you besides you’re here to get a job.”
-Director Edward Vasko
