As a #DPTstudent, you are grinding through school with the goal of finding gainful employment. Of course, networking is an important part of getting a job, but it goes much further. Networking is important for finding mentors who will help shape your career, for meeting other professionals and potential patients and for helping to “sell” yourself and the profession as a direct, first step in healthcare. What can you do to start networking productively now?

On July 9, 2014 at 9 PM EST we will go LIVE with Jerry Durham, PT (@Jerry_DurhamPT). Jerry is Principal and Chief Sales Officer at San Francisco Sport and Spine Physical Therapy, with three locations in the Bay Area. Jerry is a regular, and vocal, participant in the #DPTstudent chat. Join us as we get his perspective on “How to Sell Yourself as a #DPTstudent & Physical Therapist.”
