The Towson University Career Center will host “Networking: Showcasing your Personal Brand” on Wednesday, May 4, from 6- 7 p.m. in LA 3105.
This will be the third and final part of the Liberal Arts Career Series programs that have been featured this Spring.
“We’re going to talk about tips for networking and what’s your personal brand name and how you can share it through networking,” Internship Coordinator and Career Advisor Rachel Bachman said.
The first phase of the series showed students how to highlight their liberal arts experience on a resume. The second part discussed internships and the process of taking what one learns from their liberal arts classes and applying it to a career.
While the classes are geared to liberal arts students, they are open to anyone.
“This is the first time we’ve done this particular series,” Bachman said.
Bachman will lead Wednesday’s workshop.
“I think most jobs these days are never really advertised, but they come from networking,” she said.
The purpose of this session is to lower the intimidations of networking and introduce tips on how to do so effectively.
“It’s an essential part of finding jobs and internships,” she added.
Bachman’s goal is to help students maximize their identity to get jobs. She will also explain the benefits of networking.
“I hope it will be useful information,” she said. “We would love to have more than 12 people attend.”
