Together, Bank of America and City Year are helping to redefine leadership in the 21st Century. We believe that the strongest leaders are those who embody the spirit of service to others. To support the leadership pathways of alumni and corps members, we are collaborating on a new professional development series called “Beyond the Jacket” – a set of interactive webinars designed to build knowledge, provide access to resources and strengthen professional development skills during and after their year of service.
Webinar # 2: Initiating and Building Life-Long Relationships – How to Network Like a Natural (even if you are shy)
Tuesday, March 29, 2016
8:00-9:00 PM EST
Networking is not about acquiring tons and tons of contacts through events or sending dozens ofLinkedIn requests. It’s about developing mutually beneficial, genuine relationships with people who can enhance your knowledge, expand your sphere of influence or better help you serve your community. It’s also about you providing these same benefits to others. Have you thought about all of the amazing people you have met or can meet through the City Year community – teachers, staff members, alumni, team sponsors, corporate partners, board members, community champions and your peers?
Do you know that your affiliation as an AmeriCorps and City Year alum offers two of the richest networks in shared values and affinity to support each other? Where to begin? Who can help you advance your professional goals? How can you help advance the goals of others? Some studies have shown that up to 45% of jobs are found through networking.
This webinar aims to provide corps members, staff and alums with strategies and insights from City Year champions on how to expand your professional network and build mutually-beneficial, life-long relationships.
