Networking Events Worth Attending

You might be thinking that you don’t need to stay networking after you are hired, and I might not be the first to tell you, but you’re wrong. Networking is a huge part of growing your professional network and it’s essential to attend networking events. I’ve done my part to provide you some options of networking events to attend, but now you get to decide what to attend and make the experience worth while! Good luck and happy networking!

Coming up soon is Nebo’s Social IRL Innovation Series. You can find out more about this event here. Expect to have your mind blown as companies right in our backyard share how they create newsworthy campaigns that are #SocialAF. The event will include local beers and delicious finger foods. This event costs $50, but will be well worth your attendance.

Don’t have any plans for Saturday yet? Use this Saturday as a chance to attend an event to grow your network. Black Women in Business is happening this Saturday.

Last up has to be the one I’m most likely to attend. If you follow Your Social Team on Instagram, you’ll be longing to go to one of their networking events. This workshop is all about Influencer Marketing so you’ll have the chance to connect with others in an industry similar to you in addition to learning something new. This event costs $90, but you’re sure to gain a handful of knowledge. Check out the event here.

You are never too old, or too involved with your current company to stop networking. It’s just as important to grow your professional network as your personal network. There are networking events happening all over our awesome city every week. Don’t miss the chance to attend an event that was made for you just because you weren’t looking. Make a habit to research events happening in your area and prioritize attending them.
