About this event:
Join us for an afternoon of learning the fundamentals of networking. Whether you are a newcomer to the U.S. or a local jobseeker, this event brings together both non-native and native English speakers to learn, practice, and apply relevant professional skills ranging from making introductions, small talk, creating an elevator pitch, and building connections with others to increase your network. Stay after the event for a tour of the Tompkins County Public Library and learn about the resources it has to offer.
