Networking is a focused way of developing and building a group of professional contacts who can serve as friends and resources during your career.

Benefits of Networking

  • Your contacts can help you develop professionally and open doors to career opportunities.
  • Networking can include advice, recommendations, or actually being hired. Each person you have contact with may bring you one step closer to the job you desire or to your career goals.
  • In the small world of pharmacy, networking is extremely important because most pharmacy positions are filled by word of mouth.
