A digital connector between executives and search firm members of the AESC (the Association of Executive Search Consultants) called BlueSteps, a service of the AESC, sponsored a lunchtime tweetchat “In-Person Networking” on September 8, 2015. Susan Goldberg of SGES was one of the three experts responding to questions about networking. The conversation included 9 questions. Three points which came out of the question and answer session: networking is not about you, it’s not a sales pitch; make sure you follow through/follow up; you can find networking events through colleagues, linkedin, meetup, Crain’s, professional associations.
One career tip which was not mentioned during the course of our exchange: if you want to change career directions or industries, one of the most productive methods for doing that is through networking.
If you were able to follow along with the chat, we hoped you enjoyed it and found it useful. This is one of the several tweetchats with the hashtag #ExecCareer that Susan has partcipated in. Each time it get’s easier and more fun. Thanks, as always go to the AESC, BlueSteps.com and Julia Salem for organizing the conversations. If you have additional questions, please reach out to Susan at email@example.com.
