How to be yourself and even have fun while networking in an effective way

As a PhD candidate or postdoc you know your position is temporary and you need to already start working on the next step in your career.

But how do you meet interesting people that can lead you to your next job? While everyone says you need to start networking, that doesn’t sound very tempting. And how can you successfully make use of your existing network?

You have probably done some online networking through social media platforms already. But even in this day and age, the most important part of networking happens face to face. You can learn how to be successful in offline networking too. After this workshop, you will have a networking plan ready and you will know which steps to take next.

Important topics are:

  • how networking works
  • (un)helpful assumptions about networking
  • do’s and don’ts of networking
  • your existing network
  • your personal networking action plan

Susanne has been a wonderful trainer to work with. The programme designed and provided by Susanne in collaboration with another coach perfectly met the needs of the course participants. It consisted of a variety of activities, from presentations and talks, to individual and group exercises. At the end of each training day, the progress and outcomes have been assessed and the agenda amended to meet specific requirements of the participants.

True passion for working with people, ability to connect and understand the concerns of individuals from different backgrounds and ages were aspects that make Susanne an exceptional and versatile trainer. On one hand, her friendly and approachable personality puts people at ease. On the other, her professionalism and extensive knowledge evokes trust. Therefore, I’d highly recommend Susanne and will use her services in the future.
