Professional networking doesn’t have to be daunting, and finding a new job isn’t the only benefit networking brings to the table.
Networking can help you learn more about your field. It can also make you feel more connected to others in your industry – whether you remain acquaintances with your new connections or become lifelong friends, you’ll be glad to have met.
Volunteering with a professional organization can help you enter new networking waters. Through volunteering with PRSA Pittsburgh and AAF Pittsburgh, I’m able to give back to the community and serve as a resource to emerging professionals – a full-circle moment.
