My Networking Accomplishments
So without further ado, here are some of the highlights from the third week of the Network Challenge.
(1) I met quite a few of my future co-workers during a meet-and-greet. I am super excited to start on March 6th in the new office. There were a lot of synergies between what I bring to the table and what they are currently working on. So, I can’t wait to start.
(2) I caught up with one friend this week, but tried to call three others. Everyone seems so busy these days between work and family, but it’s still nice to catch up when you can. On a quick side note, does anyone else think that a guy calling up another guy up to catch up can be a bit weird? Usually, I call and a friend will respond with, “Is everything okay? Do you need something?” After we get through some of that beginning awkwardness, it’s always great to reconnect.
(3) Finally, since Monday is President’s Day, I plan to reach out to everyone in my LinkedIn network to see if there is anything that I can help them with or connect them with others in my network. So, wish me luck as I pound out those emails 🙂
