40: The Hell of Networking

May 20, 2014, 02:39 PM

Ask a group of women how much they enjoy networking and most will shudder. They see it as fake, transactional, not something they want to spend time on. Research backs this up: women do not connect with other people in their industry or even within their companies as much as men do, and it's hurting their careers. In this show three guests talk about how to get over the dread of networking, why it's worth engaging with strangers on a regular basis, and why it's never too late to follow up.
