In in this episode, we are joined by 2 Yale PhD students to discuss the trials and tribulations of networking. This often misunderstood, yet essential, component of the job search need not require you to be socially outgoing, nor does it involve you asking others for steep favors! We discuss the subtle benefits that come from reaching out to others and, most importantly, listening to what they have to say.
Searching for jobs can seem daunting and stressful. A lack of clarity in what this process fully entails keeps many from being able to see their actual progress and identify other aspects that could use support. In this episode, we begin to break down the process itself, and investigate how routinizing various aspects of the process can help us not only when we are actively searching for a job, but also as we grow and develop professionally.
