The power of networking in job market success will be the topic of an upcoming annual career event hosted by the Department of Management and Marketing in the Jones College of Business.
Entitled “Digging Deeper,” this year’s event will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30, in Room S102 (State Farm Room) of the Business and Aerospace Building. It is free and open to the public.
“The purpose of ‘Digging Deeper’ is to expose students to career preparedness issues,” said Dr. Don Roy, a professor of marketing.
This year, Dave Delaney, a Nashville-based digital marketing and business networking expert, will give a presentation entitled “Your Network is More Important than Your Résumé.”
Delaney is author of the book “New Business Networking” and host of the New Business Networking Radio podcast.
Among his professional recognitions, Delaney was selected by Billboard Magazine as a digital marketing expert to follow in July 2012 and that same year was featured by the Nashville Business Journal as a Power Leader of Technology in Nashville. In 2011, Delaney was awarded the Digital Media Champion AIM Award by the American Marketing Association in Nashville.
Delaney has appeared in technology stories in USA Today, Billboard Magazine, Globe & Mail, Nashville Business Journal, The Tennessean and Mashable. Learn more about him at daveadelaney.com.
