Students can learn tips for networking at the La Follette School's next professional development seminar on Tuesday, March 5, at noon in the La Follette School conference room.

"Networking is a specific skill set," says organizer Kate Battiato, the school's career development coordinator. "A few easy tips can help people feel more comfortable in establishing professional relationships, which are critically important in the job search."

  • Interviewing: April 9
  • Getting State Jobs: April 16 with 2008 Master of Public Affairs alum Jennie Mauer, state coordinator for Project Launch, a federally funded program administered by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
