Stop us if you've heard these before:
- 85% or more of all jobs come from your network (LinkedIn)
- >80% of all STEM graduates work outside academia (Nature)
- Networking is about doing your HW + having a conversation (Inc)
In this day and age, it's more about who you know than what you know and those looking to climb the corporate ladder are discovering that traditional hierarchy to resemble more of a corporate network (FastCo). It's critical to develop impactful and genuine networking skills.
We know, we know - networking and professional development can be touchy subjects, but you don't need to reach for the beta-blockers next time you're in a stress-invoking networking debacle. We're here to help. Join the Carolina Biotech Group (CBG) and the Clemson Bioengineering Society (CBS) as we host two of the best young professional networkers in the biz. Join CBG Board Members Dr.'s Lindsey Calcutt and Kayla Wilson as they share how networking led to the creation of a new position at one of SC's most exciting medical device startups and helped raise over 500k in startup capital for her diagnostic startup. We'll break the ice, talk best practices, and even provide refreshments.
