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.
