Ladies Get Paid x Luminary: Expand Your Network to Find Mentors and Opportunities (Workshop)

  • Luminary 1204 Broadway New York, NY 10001 USA (map)

Networking is integral to getting a job and building your career. It can also be incredibly awkward.

Every single opportunity I've gotten in my life, has come from constantly cultivating relationships and then strategically leveraging them for professional opportunities. By doing that, I've never had to apply for a job, have received angel investment, and was able to grow Ladies Get Paid to 30,000 members in less than two years. There's definitely an art to networking and I want to show you how. I promise, it won't be painful :)

Join us for an interactive workshop to learn how to be more comfortable at networking events, make authentic connections, and develop + leverage relationships for professional opportunities. This will also be a great way to meet other people.
