Knocking Networking Off Its Script
If you’ve ever felt like networking is the worst, well, it can be. But get ready for some ways to make it less doom-laden! Today, we continue our conversation with Priya Parker, master facilitator and author of the book, “The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters.” Priya’s here to tell us how to start a non-boring conversation at a company mixer and even ask for help from experts in your field.
Then Liz and Rico chat with listener Sarah whose plans for a seemingly forthcoming promotion were foiled because of her company’s merger. And all the way from the UK, we connect with listener Morgan, who’s wrestling with some conflicting resume advice. To break it all down, we’ve brought in master resume-writer and career strategist Emily Kapit, who shares some strategies on how to tell a story with your resume without having to write a tome.
Last but not least, we hear from listener Erik who’s dealing with a gripe a lot of us have--the dreaded, long commute!
As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19.
