CHICAGO – In today’s business reality, who you know is just as important as what you know. With most of today’s jobs gained through personal referrals and connections, networking is an integral part of career development and success.

“Networking has become a key factor in personal business success and a primary driver in building a strong career trajectory,” said Aiello. “More now than ever before, it is important to make a powerful and unique impression on each person you meet.”

The interactive session, titled “Networking – Quality vs. Quantity” is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. on April 24, 2017. Aiello will provide attendees with an opportunity to polish their skills through a review of key tips and techniques, as well as an exploration of networking best practices and strategies for today’s modern workplace.
