Networking: Is it Phony or Natural? {podcast}

  • Share

Are you one of those people who thinks networking feels sleazy? I’ll admit, a few years ago when I was starting as a Nickelodeon intern I did too. But now I realize it’s actually a lot more human than we think.

In our inaugural episode of our podcast, I chat with Go-Getter Girl and Millennial Branding Strategist Shinjini Das on some of your networking questions.


How can I get over the mindset that networking is fake and only for those who want something from someone else?

I don’t like talking to people I don’t know, so how do I get over my fears and network while having fun?

What is the correct way to follow-up after a networking event or seminar as in how do I close the loop?

I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado.
