Job Search Workshop: Negotiating & Networking

This workshop series is designed for anyone who is job searching, plans to begin a job search soon, or has questions related to job searching. It is designed for current students of the iSchool at Illinois and the emphasis will be on job searches in the information sciences. Specifically focused on job searching in higher education, public or non-profit organizations, and corporate/private industry. You are encouraged to attend all three sessions but welcome to attend just one or two. The first round will be recorded and made available later on the iSchool Wiki.

In the final session we will go over negotiation: what are your options and should you negotiate? We will cover how negotiation differs in various industries. We will also discuss the value of networking in the job search process. Strategic networking can benefit you in the short and long run. We will go over different types of networking from “cold” email, informational interviews and what to talk about at conferences and similar events. Time for Q & A at the end.
