From the time I was in high school, my dad would tell me he would ask anyone to help get me an internship or job - his clients, people on the street, clerks at the grocery store. I used to resist the help, determined to be independent and to avoid this guilty feeling I had about networking being transactional. But I knew that networking was an important part of building my career. It was only when I shifted my perspective and started to view networking as an activity that aligned to my value of building community did I start to bring confidence to networking.

In this chat, I want you to walk away with:

  • Clarity around what networking means to you and what you want from it
  • Guidance on how to approach networking in an authentic way
  • Tips for effectively approaching anyone - from your closest contacts to pure strangers
