Themed workshop

Meeting with professionals and networking to optimize your job search

[0.5 day]

At each career milestone and regardless of your goal, your network will prove an essential tool for expanding your opportunities and approaching them with professionalism. Each network has its explicit and unspoken rule, which you must understand to ensure coherent and effective initiatives.

Practical exercise: role-playing on networking approaches among peers


“I really liked the review of the five networking rules, the different ways to build my network and the tools for increasing my visibility. Reinforcing the theoretical concepts with practical exercises such as role-playing was one of the highlights of this workshop. You assimilate concepts better by putting them into practice. I enjoyed the group dynamics and the discussions devoted to our experiences.”
“The workshop was organized perfectly. The content was highly instructive. I really liked the time spent on theoretical concepts and implementing the tools needed to meet professionals, as well as the situational exercises. I realized the advantage of being in a group setting! One of the huge advantages of the workshops I have taken with ABG is the group synergy and the fact that these workshops are one way of building our network.”
“Thank you very much for this workshop. It was very useful and interesting! I want also to highlight the fact that it was an interactive and dynamic session which is a really good environment to learn quickly and remember all the important points discussed during the workshop. I also really appreciated the little exercises especially the one about the pitch which allowed us to share and discuss about our different subjects. I didn't know too much about networking before the workshop and now I have all the tools to be able to network efficiently! Thank you again!”
"Good workshop and good advice. Moreover, we discuss with other participants and expand our network! It was nice to have taken the time to create our own pitches to improve them."
"The most important point was the deconstruction of preconceived ideas about communication and the use of networks in a professional context."
"The goal in my case was not really to learn about networking, which I think I already practice very actively on a daily basis, but to network and glean information on other topics. My goal was achieved, because I had interesting discussions with the trainers, the speakers, and I learned other things!"
"The dynamism, the listening, the experience of the speakers, the fact of having several trainers with different approaches."
