The COVID-19 pandemic has upended for millions of students around the world. On college campuses everywhere, many students are expressing their frustration that this virtual experience lacks a critical element of the college experience – quality networking with peers, alumni, and potential hiring managers.
That’s why UpHabit, the personal CRM for thoughtful Super Connectors (and those who aspire to be one), is launching the Student SuperConnector Challenge. Using the app, students who complete ten challenges, with a range of networking tasks, will have a firm grasp on the fundamentals of networking in an easy and user-friendly format, and will solidify their existing network and make some new contacts. They’ll then earn an UpHabit Student SuperConnector Challenge certificate of completion, which they can add to their resume, post on their LinkedIn profile, or send to prospective employers, to show they’ve mastered the core skills of networking.
“This is such an incredibly important time in a student’s life,” said Neil Wainwright, founder and CEO of UpHabit. “This is when you really start to form lifelong connections that will help you for the rest of your career. And whether you’re still in school, a recent graduate, or someone who graduate years ago, and just wants to reconnect with your old school contacts, UpHabit is here for you.”
This program, offered at no cost to students or their schools, is UpHabit’s way of supporting those students, wherever they may be in their college or early career. The app can be downloaded for free, with premium upgrades available. UpHabit is always ad-free and privacy-driven, and will never sell or trade your private information.
Neil Wainwright is also available to provide complimentary networking sessions, guest lectures, or app instruction for classes or programs that want to help their students with their networking challenges.
