Workshop: Mastering the Art of Networking

RSVPs for this event are now closed.

Everyone always says it - relationships matter. Nowhere is that more true than international affairs, where the involvement of national and international governments and organizations can create a system so complex and subject to global competition that it's often impossible to get an initial interview without a personal recommendation. So how do you build your network to maximize your opportunities in the field?

Please join YPFP and Melis Tusiray for a workshop on developing networking strategies to build a network of personal connections that will continue to support you for years to come.

This workshop will (1) Equip you with a "big picture" understanding of the opportunities, pressures, and challenges of networking in this field and (2) Talk about networking strategies, tips and tricks to maximize your engagements with others in international affairs.

Dues-paying YPFP members can RSVP by logging into their account below. This event is only open to YPFP members. For more information on joining YPFP, visit our membership page.
