|Infrequently Asked Questions: The Art of Networking|
|The art of finding help when you need it will be demonstrated and practiced at the May 22 meeting of the IEEE Consultants Network of Northern NJ (CNNNJ). CNNNJ member Merrill Rutman will lead a discussion on networking techniques. The discussion will be followed by a live networking session.
ABOUT THE TOPIC
Networking is our middle name at the CNNNJ. As independent engineering practitioners, we rely upon who we know, as well as what we know, for almost every aspect of our businesses. Landing consulting assignments and then delivering the product or service that our clients expect requires human connections, so we’re constantly challenged to exercise our network of contacts to locate someone with information and skills that we don’t have. At this meeting, we’ll discuss and demonstrate techniques for using our current contacts as a springboard to the wider world where lie the answers that we seek.
Send your questions about networking to Merrill
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will include them in the discussion.
