Learn from People Doing Interesting Things

To start: 

  • Watch the recording of Building Relationships That Accelerate Success, an Engineering Master’s Professional Development workshop, led by Austin Belcak on the power of relationships and his approach to outreach (from September 2020).
  • Use the outreach guide created by your career coaches for step-by-step instructions. 
  • Set a weekly or bi-weekly outreach goal and track your efforts using Excel or a Google spreadsheet. Evaluate your progress and celebrate your successes weekly or bi-weekly. Celebrating your successes is a vital part, so find a win each week. The win could be you met your goal, you had an awesome career chat, or you sent a status update. 🎉
  • Already connected? Status updates are huge in growing relationships over time. Check out the Follow-up to Keep your Network and Search Alive in the 8 Steps for Search Success for a guide.
