Share evidence of your first networking "yes"
Are you struggling to find a job you care about? Getting turned down and you don’t know why?
I founded NY Creative Interns and have spoken at conferences, colleges, and events across the country about erasing negativity from the phrase "it's all about who you know." Life is all about the people you meet and the things you create with them, but that's not a bad thing!
This class is designed for college students and recent grads who are looking for help finding their place (and a job, perhaps?) in the big city (or any city).
In this class we’ll cover ways to reach out to people, balancing your search with social activities, how to find the best events, and the art of hustle. You’ll leave class feeling confident and prepared to find and meet people who will help you in the next stage of your career. Plus, you’ll have fun!
During class we will:
This class will consist of one kick-off livestream - I'll spend about 60 minutes on the presentation, with the rest of the time for application of what you’ve learned and Q&A. You'll work on a series of tasks that will help you practice your networking skills, and we'll hop back on a final livestream for feedback and Q&A.
By the end of this class, you'll have built your first networking hitlist...but you won't stop there. You'll actually make connections, whether in person or online!
