How to Network Authentically

Networking can sometimes feel overwhelming and intimidating, leaving many feeling forced into interactions. Learning how to network more authentically can help alleviate anxiety and create meaningful connections.

  • Actively engage with instructors and classmates.
  • Consider joining a young professionals association or group.
  • Be an attentive listener; instead of waiting for your turn to speak, listen with the intention of understanding the other person.
  • Ask questions and share challenges or setbacks.
  • Look for common interests to connect with the person you’re speaking with.

Authentic networking is not only meaningful but can also help you stand out and build genuine connections. Incorporating some vulnerability into your networking, such as sharing setbacks or discussing challenges, can make conversations feel more genuine!
