Sustainability applied to networking is about treating professional support and assistance like a resource, and creating more of it than you take. Written for an international STEM audience, Sustainable Networking for Scientists and Engineers discusses how to create success and mutually beneficial professional relationships. This book addresses networking and careers in a holistic sense, considering subjects such as self-awareness, empathy, communication and conversational skills, and how to interact with the diverse people who form our global STEM community. It also addresses how to network in your hometown or office, at conferences, online, and how to find new employment. Exercises at the end of each chapter are designed to help readers apply what they have learned and create a sustainable networking strategy that is unique to their strengths and abilities.
