This week has encouraged you to think about the network of contacts you have in place, how you can engage with them to help you in achieving your career aspirations and how to engage with networks when looking for work.
In the next two weeks, you will be considering how to present yourself to people who may be able to offer you the kind of work you want to do. That work may be within your existing employment or career or with new potential employers, whether or not the work is paid or voluntary.
You should now feel that you can:
- understand networks and networking
- explore traditional and online networking opportunities
- consider how networking supports your career development
- map your own network and plan how to extend it.
You can now go to Week 6.
