Networking

"Network (noun), a group of people who keep in contact with each other to exchange information

Network (verb), keep in contact with other people to exchange information"

(Oxford Dictionary)

With the increase in technology usage, social media platforms and old fashioned magazines, there is a plethora of resources out there to help you network and get career advice, share your thoughts and just keep in touch. And don't forget opportunities on campus to network and learn more about job opportunities and how to prepare.

At Queen's and within the Kingston community, there are also groups looking for help whether that be a paid position or voluntary. This is your chance to not only get some work experience and networking opportunities but also support Queen's and the Kingston community.
