WICT members came together on March 11 for the Art of Networking 2014, where they had a great time learning from media executives how to sharpen their networking skills. The panel was moderated by Ardell Fleeson and panelists included top players in the industry who offered career advice and networking tips. Members picked up advice valuable to their networking goals such as:
- Send handwritten notes as opposed to emails when possible
- Do some research and find a common subject with people you are interested in meeting
- Have a plan when you first meet people
- Following up after the first meeting
The panel was then followed by some time for mingling where members were able to put their newly learned skills to good use!
