It’s been a while since I’ve done anything career orientated, so I thought that I’d get my act together and give all those career women out there something they can use.
As the saying goes, it’s not about what you know, it’s all about who you know. So the question is, how do you meet those people that will help you get to where you want to be? We meet people via our work and schooling networks, and you can add to them via online platforms like LinkedIn, but personally, I’m a big believer in the benefit of networking events.
I try to attend a few different events a year. Some of a social nature and others come in the form of technical training. Given technical training is very specific to your line of work (I’m an accountant by trade, and let me tell you, no one wants to go to tax or accounting standards update unless they absolutely have to), so i’m going to focus on social and motivational events that anyone can attend.
