Networking is the premier skill that high-potential business pros need in the 21st century workplace. That means the proficiency for creating long-term links for mutual success inside an organization — and beyond it, in trade, professional and alumni groups. This applies equally well to knowledge talent in engineering and science, where growing collaboration rules, and to communication/marketing roles which demand it. If you want strategic impact, you’ll need to develop top-notch networking skills. Some recent initiatives —
- “Networking Leverage” Training
Focus: Alumni – key public universities (Michigan, CUNY).
- Networking Night Initiative
Focus: Princeton University alumni (11 years of events).
- Major Networking Collaborations
Focus: Guides+Application Breakouts (Harvard, Yale, Wharton).
