Networking / Making Connections

Primary / Grades K-2

Networking involves developing, maintaining, and mobilizing relationships, not only as sources of information, but also as conduits of support, encouragement, additional contacts, and, ultimately, opportunity.

Networking is an important career development manoeuvring strategy as students gather the information and build the skills, strategies, and contacts needed to expand their vision of what might be possible in their future career journeys. 

Networking can help students to answer the questions, “What are my opportunities, and what do I need to know and be able to do in order to access them?”
