Your Network

I HATE networking. I had to do it for work; it’s awkward and everyone’s trying to get something out of it.

However, it’s so important to know people. No one can be an expert at everything and should never be ashamed to ask for help. An example? I recently uncovered a potential professional opportunity with social media. Other than a personal love I know nothing about it as a job. But I know people. I happen to be on great terms with the former Director of Social Media at our 800+ employee firm, who now works at the US Embassy in Vietnam. We have a call next week so I can pick her brain.

I share this not to brag but to stress the importance of staying connected.
