How to Set Up a Networking Call

How to Set Up a Networking Call

  • Start small. Connect with your peers, teachers, family, and friends to start off.
  • Think outside the box. Try cold-emailing, especially if you're searching for a job. It will be jarring at first due to a large amount of rejections or no replies, but as a result, it will become easier to present yourself via email or at in-person events.
  • Make the first move. You miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take, so take them.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
