The Art of Being Unforgettable: How Networking Can Create Any Opportunity
Whatever stage your career is in, from nascent to experienced, your ability to network, to visualize and then realize the professional opportunities you need, will determine how far it, and you, can eventually go. We live in a period of almost unparalleled intellectual freedom and access to anyone, anywhere. The world is getting dramatically smaller, even as our horizons get larger. If there’s a career you want, nowadays, it’s up to you to create it. Excited, yet?
Spend a Saturday morning with Creativity Yenta ™ Carlota Zimmerman learning, step-by-step, exactly how to use all of the talents and resources you already have to create the job you most desperately desire. Topics to be covered include: creating a LinkedIn profile both relevant and helpful to your chosen industry; using social media to generate brand-boosting content; networking both in person and online; why getting that great internship isn’t enough; how and why to network at different stages of your career and why it’s imperative that you just get started. Today. Now. (I'm looking at you, Sunshine.)
Carlota is a graduate of Wellesley College and IUB Maurer School of Law. Before launching her coaching business in 2008, she was a produced playwright. Upon graduating Wellesley, she worked in network news for ABC, CNN, MSNBC and FOX at bureaus in Russia and the United States. As a law student, she served an internship with Sen. Clinton’s immigration department, and clerked for Judge Michael Obus of the NY State Supreme Court. She has lived and worked in New York, Washington, D.C., Russia, India and China. (Guess how many of the above-mentioned opportunities she networked? Exactly.) Carlota absolutely loves helping her clients change their minds to change their professional lives. She’s somewhat less thrilled to be discussing herself in the third person. Become a fan of her Facebook page, “Carlotaworldwide Creativity Yenta,” for a complimentary consultation!
