EPIP Bay Area is excited to be volunteering with Upwardly Global at their Networking Skills Workshop for immigrant and refugee professionals.
Date: Thursday, September 20
Time: 6:30 – 8:30pm
Location: 50 California St, 10th Fl, San Francisco, CA 94111
A major barrier to workforce integration of new immigrant and refugee professionals is their lack of professional networks. The Networking Skills Workshop is an opportunity for volunteers to help these highly-skilled and experienced professionals practice their job seekers marketing pitch and networking skills. Participants take part in a 2-hour workshop that simulates a typical networking environment. This fun event gives job seekers a chance to practice their networking skills in a friendly environment, connect with professional peers and develop job search leads. It is a great opportunity to interact with our job seekers on a social level and to directly help them improve their networking skills.
Volunteers also have the opportunity of meeting other professionals from different companies and backgrounds, expand their own networks while doing some good in the process.
Not only is this a volunteer event to help others, but this is a great way for us to practice our own networking skills!
