Many educators struggle with networking. Some see it as something people do in the corporate world, but not in academia. They don't always understand why they should network, or how to do it if they want to.

Mary Vogl-Rauscher has taught Leadership Development and business courses at Moraine Park Technical College in Fon Du Lac, WI, for the past 15 years. The Leadership Development program offers training in leadership; human relations; budgeting; quality, legal and safety issues; problem solving and team building; and diversity and change management.

Prior to Moraine Park, Mary was Director of Executive Staffing and Development at Shopko for ten years and
also worked in Human Resources and Operations at Proctor and Gamble and Corporate McDonald's.

With her experience in higher education, career transitions, human resources and leadership development, Mary was able to offer some great perspectives on networking, how to do it, how to get started, and stumbling blocks to avoid.

This edition of the podcast was pre-recorded. The show will return live next week, with an interview of Laurence Shatkin from JIST Publishing. We'll be dicussing how to go about researching and planning a career outside of higher education.
