The word 'networking' has different meanings. In the context of career planning, it simply means the process of connecting with people of similar interest. You might do this through student groups, alumnae/i events, academic conferences or on the train home. At the core, it is about being able to explain who you are and what work you want to pursue and being resourceful at uncovering learning opportunities in your particular field. Although social networking is all the rage, an understanding of traditional networking is essential for success.
