After-hours networking makes a difference: Pylypiw
CALEDON, ON -- If you just work nine to five and typically shun the after-work social networking scene with a shoulder shrug or lame excuse, you may be missing out on valuable tools that could be advancing your career or simply making your job easier. Most of work around the same people every day, often developing routines that can be hard to shake. But if you can try breaking out of the rat race, Delta Nu Alpha Transportation Network director Jennifer Pylypiw says that's the time you can shine. When the clock strikes 5 p.m., after-work fellowship can do more to define an employee as a person, she says, and that will enrich your career. "If you're only working nine to five, you're really missing out on the industry you're working in," says Pylypiw. "It's about the work life and the personal life coming together, and you making a personal investment."
