In early October, Radio 1851 participated in national College Radio Day. The event is organized by the College Radio Foundation, and its purpose is to bring college radio stations together all around the world to celebrate the importance of college radio.
Saint Joseph’s campus radio station, Radio 1851, used the week of College Radio Day as a chance to run events to engage their DJs and the students on campus. One event of the week was a career networking lunch. Radio 1851 Career Networking Lunch provided students the opportunity to network with and learn from a panel of guests that are program directors and on-air personalities from local radio stations.
This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the Mid-Atlantic conference for the National Association of College Activities (NACA) with my fellow Student Union Board exec members. The conference was held in Buffalo, NY (I had never been there before) so I was really excited to road trip with other surrounding universities.
“NACA is the recognized leader in higher education providing knowledge, ideas and resources for campus life, providing our members with programs and events focusing on student and professional leadership development, program planning, concert management, diversity and more.”
LinkedIn is a valuable resource to assist with your job search because of how simple it makes networking. Even though networking may take a lot of patience, it should not seem so bad. It is a task that will pay off once you get your dream job. LinkedIn helps portray your professional image to employers while staying up to date with professionals that you meet or would like to. The social media website for business is tremendous way to build and stay current with your network.
LinkedIn is Green
After talking with a professional at a career fair or networking event,
If you are like any other college student when first searching for a job or internship you come to the realization that you have absolutely zero connections. Well, that is an easy problem to fix and this blog will touch on the three of the best ways to make the connections that you need to get recognized.
Before we begin to discuss strategies to gain connections, one must understand the main component which will assist you in this process and that is confidence. The dictionary defines confidence as the full trust: belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing: belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities.
If I have learned anything at college and through internships it is that personal relationships run the world.
Building social connections, not only through current friends but also future coworkers and employers, is an important objective for anyone. Not only do strong connections boost productivity and happiness in the workspace but they also allow greater opportunities to open up for you in the future.
Now, I am not saying that you should just make a bunch of friends or connections without sentimental value or genuine feeling. Make real friends.
