Connect & Learn – Network Meet Up
About This Event
Are you looking to connect with others who understand your career ambitions? Maybe you want to expand your network and learn from other peoples experiences or get unbiased advice in a safe space to help you progress your career?
One of our goals at Rise Up is to take the stigma away from ‘networking’ and strip it back to what it actually is. Connecting with others and building meaningful relationships. We are passionate about bringing interesting people together and that’s why we have created these Rise Up network meet up’s. This is a safe space where we can all learn from each other and tap into the power of our network.
If used properly our network allows us to access opportunities that we might not be able to find on our own. Your network has the potential to provide you with insights into different fields, information on what potential employers look for and advice on how you can improve professionally.
