Networking is the skill of making and maintaining relationships and contacts. The networks you can develop will provide you with valuable help, support and resource – both personally and professionally – for the rest of your life. Networking skills are also a key attribute potential employers’ value (whether in or out of the legal professions). Networking activities can also sometimes form part of assessment centres and recruitment processes. However, knowing where to start to acquire and practise networking skills can be daunting.
We are therefore delighted to invite second and final year students to a networking workshop and networking practice which Irwin Mitchell has kindly agreed to offer to our students. The event will take place in the School of Law on 29 October from 5pm. The first 45-50 minutes will be a networking workshop introducing you networking and how to begin making effective contacts and professional relationships. Following the workshop, you will then get an opportunity to practise your skills with other Irwin Mitchell employees.
Important note: this event is open to anyone interested in attending, but as ever, if you sign up you have an obligation to attend. If you find that you are unable to attend the session, please email email@example.com
