  • Aug 29, 2012 · 7:00 PM


About this VIRTUAL Class

This class is designed for recent grads who are looking for help finding their place (and a job, perhaps?) in the big city. We'll cover ways to find the best events, how to reach out to people, balancing your job search with social activities, and the art of hustle. You'll leave class feeling confident and prepared to find and meet people who will help you in the next stage of your career. Plus, you'll have fun! During class we will:

  • Discuss how to stand out in the sea of recent grads
  • Uncover the best way to get informational interviews
  • Learn why going out is as important as emailing resumes
  • and more!

Classes consist of 30 - 45 minutes on the presentation, with the rest of the time for application of what you've learned and Q&A. Class Reviews
"Emily is a great teacher because she's genuine and passionate about what she's talking about."
"Emily has tons of first hand experience when it comes to networking and making connections. This class provided some GREAT advice on all sorts of things from how to meet new people, find cool events or how to write an efficient email. The best part was Emily had many personal anecdotes throughout the class that she would share. I would definitely recommend this class to a recent graduate, it really gets you in the mindset you need to start reaching out and get stuff done!"
Class was really helpful in learning new ways to use social media to market yourself and stay on the radar of employers. Emily had a lot of creative ideas that I wouldn't have thought of myself, and she brought a great energy to the class. Never felt intimidated and the class would be a great step to building (or starting) your own network! Recommend!
