Networking the Wylde Way

Students and Alumni from the School of International Service came out on February 4 for a networking workshop before a reception to learn the basics of successful networking and relationship-building from Jim Wylde, an SIS MA alum from ’87.

Jim is a leadership coach specializing in global management development, networking and career/life planning. His background includes 16 years with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) as well as faculty and staff positions at American University, Georgetown University, and George Mason University, and is also a certified/licensed trainer in the methodology of Contacts Count and facilitates workshops to help others develop networking know-how for business and career success.

Sound wylde? Well, students in attendance agreed- and everyone was glad they came:


If you aren’t in SIS or you couldn’t make it to the workshop, have no fear! The AU Career Center still has your back. There’s a slew of upcoming workshops on our events calendar for networking and more.
