Have you been told that you should be networking to find your next opportunity? Between a fear of appearing needy and a lack of clarity in the purpose of these conversations, it’s no wonder that most people greet this idea with a sense of dread.
In our program, you will discover the reasons to build relationships with legal professionals (hint: it’s NOT about selling yourself). Discover how to convert brief conversations into long-term colleagues, and explore the power your connections can have in helping you achieve your goals. You’ll gain tactics to successfully navigate relationship building, whether you are meeting attorneys one-on-one or in larger group settings. You’ll also discover how engagement in bar associations and professional organizations can help you raise your profile within your community and at your job.
