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?
