November 12th: Networking During a Global Pandemic


Abstract: Networking is a one of the most critical professional activities that a chemist can do throughout their career. The COVID-19 global health pandemic has created an environment that has taken networking away from the coffee pot stations and after-hours establishments and placed it square in your kitchen and onto your couch. Despite what it may seem, our work from home (WFH) culture has created numerous ways to network while simultaneously maintaining social distance. This presentation will discuss some of the fundamentals of networking, ways to utilize your WFH status to your advantage, and how to grow your network of relationships to help you achieve your career goals.
