What is Networking?

Networking allows you to build a connection that can lead to a mutually beneficial relationship. It isn't about "what you can do for me," it is about what you can do for each other. To begin networking:

  • Talk to people you are familiar with such as family, friends and classmates
  • Identify people who are employed in your field of interest
  • Contact alumni (via Miami Alumni Connect) to learn more about career paths
  • Connect with your career community on LinkedIn to build your professional network
  • Attend a Career Center program or event where employers are focused on interacting with Miami students
