Networking & Interviews
Plan ahead; have your resources in place before you need them. While in college, spend 30 minutes per month in career related activities; upon graduation you are more likely to have a clear action plan.
What is Networking?
- It is the art of actively getting to know people
- It is said that it is Who you know not What you know

- Connecting with family, friends, church members, Concordia's faculty and staff, visitors at career events
- Contacts from volunteer and internship experiences

- Using Social Networking for the job search
- Being prepared to quickly introduce yourself
- Have a specific position/objective in mind and you will come across as being focused.
- Research information on the company, the industry, and salary range.
- Prepare to talk salary, but don’t bring it up first.
