Introduction to Making New Connections


Welcome to the Making New Connections course! We’re glad you’re here and hope you’re excited to get started. Before you begin, here’s an overview of what you can expect from this course.

Why we created this course – In the Getting Started With Networking course, we discussed how to start networking by reaching out to people you already know and establishing professional relationships with them. This is a great starting place since you already have a level of familiarity and comfort with those people, but at a certain point, you need to expand beyond the people you already know. We made this course to help you uncover ways you can get out and start meeting new people you can build relationships with.

Who this course is for – This course is designed for those just getting started or who started recently in their networking journeys. It can also benefit those networking for a while as we discuss creative ways for professionals to meet new contacts. Whether you are just starting to network or have been for a while, there is room to learn more.
