If you’re looking for a new job, and are in Silicon Valley, or live mid-Peninsula, why not consider checking out CAM and join me this Saturday, October 20, 2012 for:
Bay Area-based author and speaker, Sandy Jones-Kaminski, believes that beyond self-promotion, networking can help build community, and that just like leadership and management skills, networking skills CAN be learned. And when approached with a “pay it forward” attitude, networking can even help create healthier social and business environments. Sandy will offer her advice and share some practical tips on how to cultivate meaningful connections, engage in thoughtful conversations and create good social capital in your career and professional life.
Just some of what you will discover and learn:
- the truth behind the four myths of networking
- in-person and online techniques to organically grow your personal and professional networks
- ways to begin a conversation other than with that dreaded phrase, “So what do you do?”
Sandy will also host a book signing at the event, and is donating 2 copies of “I’m at a Networking Event–Now What???” to be raffled off after her presentation (also available on Amazon or iTunes).
