Did you know that about 80% of jobs are never advertised? To ensure you aren’t missing out on opportunities, building a strong professional network is essential.
We know that reaching out to strangers can be daunting. Reaching out to those who have a shared experience with you can be a less intimidating way to start. Additionally, because you have a shared connection to alums through ASU, W. P. Carey, and any other educational institutions or professional associations, the likelihood of these individuals responding to you is stronger.
