Real Networking Tips for Meeting the Global BIO Audience in June

There are 15,000 life science leaders coming to town in June for the 2012 BIO International Convention - are you ready to network?

Join us at MassBio on Tuesday, May 1 at 5:30pm to enjoy a drink (or two), network, and discuss how to successfully network for employment.

For years now people have touted networking as the most effective means of finding a new job. However many people have a difficult time effectively navigating the waters that are employment networking. When Networking is Not Working is a brief presentation designed to quickly walk participants through the Dos and Don’ts of networking for employment.

You’ll gain insights from professional veterans from two biotech companies, a staffing agency and an Internet employment services firm and leave prepared to utilize networking opportunities at BIO in June. Join us!

    I enjoyed the event. It was a great networking opportunity. The '7 tips' information was very useful. It was also great to hear about networking from the perspective of HR professionals.

    I didn't realize this meetup was for job seekers since the title of the meeting didn't mention that. Nonetheless, I met a couple interesting people who could be good future contacts.
