The Museum and Heritage sector is an industry in which  "who you know" really matters.  The job market is competitive, and even if you write a great application that doesn't guarantee an interview, let alone a job.  It really helps to know people in order to get in and get ahead. 

But how can you build a professional network if you're still at university?  And what if you're shy,  nervous about contacting strangers, confused about where to start or just convinced that networking is "something other people do"?

In this workshop we'll be teaching a PROVEN methodology that will help you reach out to people in the industry, have good quality conversations, and put yourself in a position where you are much more likely to hear about opportunities when they come up.   It is a straightforward and time-effective method and only requires a Linked In profile, a clear idea of what sort of job you're looking for, and the desire (or desperation) to stretch beyond your job-hunting comfort zone. 

There will be photography at this event. Please note that photographs, video, sound and/or written submissions taken at our events may be used in future printed and electronic UCL promotional material. Photographs/video will be stored electronically.
