The Social Networker: Online & Offline Techniques to Better Networking

A little over a year and a half after graduating college… I have a little over a year and a half of work experience.

I am VERY fortunate to have this work experience.  So many other millennials are struggling with a poor job market, starting to have to pay back student loans, and continually looking to begin their career path.  A lot of the time, this situation comes with lack of time and lack of funds to spend on networking, meeting others, and searching for jobs.

Not only am I fortunate to have this work experience, but I am also fortunate enough to have an employer that encourages networking.  This has led to my learning to use my time wisely and use tools to make me more efficient at making the right contacts not just A LOT of contacts.

The following blog series will focus on some of the tools & techniques to make sure you are using your time and money efficiently. Posts include the following:

  • Getting the introduction
  • Going beyond that networking event
  • Ask for advice, get a job.. Ask for a job, get advice!
  • Follow-up: Why is the simple step so hard?

FQHC & Homelessness Advocate. Coach. Bartender. I am always learning something new ABOUT social media, and I am always learning something new while I am ON social media. Life is busy, but I still make time to write about the topics I am passionate about. My passions aim at ending homelessness and increasing health care access to low-income, uninsured, and underinsured residents of Indianapolis. My posts touch on a lot of different subjects ranging from the use of social media in advocacy, to the obstacles facing those who need better access to care, and to current events in Indianapolis! I am a millennial who is likes to blog about millennial engagement in advocacy movements, social change, and non-profits. Continually learning about social media, this blog site helps me to sort through my thoughts and discuss with others who have gone through or are just now going through the same experiences as I am.
