Networking is a process of developing professional relationships that are mutually beneficial. These relationships allow you to get to know individuals who can help with your career needs while you offer to do the same in return. This relationship can also help you to focus your career planning while developing a network to uncover the hidden job market. While it is not a readily available source of jobs, the relationships you develop may lead you to potential jobs.

Networking at NVU

With our vast alumni network and faculty support, you’ll find networking opportunities throughout your internship or career search. Start by attending one of our networking events (career fairs or Dinner with the Boss) to make connections and ask your adviser and professors if they have connections or resources to help you get to where you want to be.
