Professional networking is when you create and grow relationships with other professionals in your career or other relevant fields. Networking enables you to develop relationships with others that are mutually advantageous to your career and those in your network. Students can build a professional network in numerous places (both online and offline), including networking events, career and job fairs, social events, previous/current jobs, and social media sites that are designed for professionals. People recommend to include in your professional network are Sonoma State University staff/faculty, previous/current classmates, friends, coworkers, supervisors, and family.

The Sonoma State Network is a fantastic way for you to start and/or grow your professional network. This new professional mentorship and networking platform aims at providing students and alumni with a professional community that can offer Seawolves networking support/practice, jobs/internship opportunities, career exploration and advice, career related resources, and much more
