How to begin networking

How do I begin networking?

Begin with working out your current networks. These may be family, friends, school, work, university, sporting club etc. Do any of these people work in your industry of interest or do they know someone who does? If so, you may wish to organise an informational interview to gain more industry information and expand your network.

You can also attend Careers fairs and employer events both on campus and externally. These are advertised on CareerHub and professional associations’ websites. Joining a professional association or a UWA club or society may also provide you with more networking opportunities.
