I used to think of networking as stressful and laborious. The vision conjured in my mind was of awkward encounters with strangers, inauthentic conversations, jockeying over others to get a handshake, and of “selling” yourself.
When I first wanted to write a blog about networking, I asked myself if I was actually qualified to do this. Then I looked back at the last five-plus years of my life: founding a successful networking association from scratch, building work and social relationships in a new country, and starting my Executive MBA. I began to think that maybe I could share with others what I have learned.
The Career Management Center (CMC) for Working Professionals was one of the top factors in my decision to apply to Goizueta’s Evening MBA program.
Two years ago, when I was considering where to pursue my MBA, one of my top priorities was to attend a school with a strong alumni network.
