Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso
In this course, you’ll focus on two key parts of networking. 
 
In the first part, you will focus on an elevator pitch, a short speech to highlight the qualities that are important to finding a job or making a connection. 
You’ll practice giving your speech and get feedback on your content, vocabulary, and pronunciation.  
 
The second part of the course is about networking events. These are informal meetings to make connections with people in a certain area. You’ll practice making “small talk” and you’ll get better at making conversation and ending conversations. You’ll also know how to dress for success and attend your own networking event. 
 
We’re sure your network will grow after you take these steps.
