Networking can lead to a job.  But you have many questions:

  • How do I approach people?
  • How do I deal with my fear of being rejected? 
  • Who is the right person to network with? 
  • What can I do for my network? 
  • What can my network do for me? 

Come and practice with Noha Fahmi how to network with people you don’t know. Noha will share her tips and insights on how to network and where you can network.  She will provide ideas, practices and examples of how networking can lead to a job opportunity.
