WHY NETWORKING IS SO IMPORTANT
Regardless of the job market, networking can be instrumental to one's success. By definition, networking is the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups or institutions; specifically: the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business. In essence, networking is built around the premise that if one gives business to others, one will get business in return.
As we tell all Marquette University students upon entering, “You are now part of the Marquette family.” One benefit of this “family” is being connected to thousands of professionals in a variety of career fields, industries and professions. Most MU alumni are very interested in helping out a fellow Golden Eagle.
Using a common platform for connection such as Linkedin allows contacts to keep updated contact and professional information readily available.
