Hey Career Girl Nation!
Today I’m coming at you with another episode about networking.
I want to talk about the importance of networking across. This is something that is often overlooked when it comes to networking. People are quick to network up--looking to people who are above them in their careers. But I want to talk about why you should be networking across.
This episode is inspired by an interview that Issa Rae did. In this interview, she talked about networking with people on the same level as her. People who were ‘in the trenches’ at the same time, and how that helped elevate her career. This is networking across!
In today’s episode, I’m talking about how you can strategically place yourself around people who are on the same level as you, and how to make this an important part of your networking plan.
If you’re ready to get serious about networking, then you don’t want to miss episode 33!
