That’s when I had my lightbulb moment. Why don’t I start my own networking group, make my own rules and create events that young women just like me would enjoy? Ding, ding!
What is success? Is it job satisfaction, a big paycheck, a healthy family—or maybe all of the above? And how do we become successful, someone that others admire and want to be like?
I work for a large consumer brand and six months ago, I was moved to a new department as part of a reorganization. I feel lucky to have a job, as a few people I know lost theirs, but I’m not happy.
We’ve all experienced it: you see a job you’re super excited about, you apply online, then you wait. And wait. And wait. And wait. Sound familiar?
It’s heartbreaking to lose a job offer you think is in the bag. This feeling is even worse for recent college graduates with little experience and few tangible skills.
I always knew I wanted to write. When I was in elementary school I wanted to be an author and newspaper editor.
Networking. The word alone just sounds like a lot of … work … right? (Kind of like how that little boy in the picture above must feel walking into that big bus!)
