We're all looking at a summer of armchair internships and kitchen co-working spaces.
But, what happens after that?
Today, we're tackling networking.
I'm Nicole Ellis, and this is The New Normal.
Trying to build the kinds of relationships that will take your career to the next level is a lot of pressure.
Add a pandemic to the mix and it's even more complicated.
But that doesn't necessarily have to stop you.
Here are five tips to set yourself up for success for when lockdown is over.
Tip one is reach out.
The way we connect with each other has completely changed.
And that actually means that right now is a great time to connect with people.
Because they're no longer out having coffee, lunch, dinners or networking with other people.
They're all at home just like you.
Tip two is get personal, within reason.
Being professional doesn't mean that you're impervious to the world around you.
And being a little vulnerable might foster an even stronger connection.
Now is the time that you can get more personal with folks and ask people how they're feeling.
And it also shows that you're aware of what's happening around you.
And it's not just all about your job search.
And that's going to be very refreshing when people are anxious and distracted and incredibly busy.
Asking thoughtful questions and being a part of someone's support system, even as a potential hire, makes you more memorable.
People will want to be around other people that make them feel like, "Yes, this is a going to be okay."
So to the extent that you can really demonstrate that kind of calm and confidence that things will get better that's actually going to help you and differentiate you as a job seeker.
Tip three is get specific.
Have a clear idea of why you're talking to this person and what you want to get out of the conversation.
The good rules of networking still apply.
When you approach someone, you want to be specific about why you're contacting them.
Tip four is know your value, even from the couch.
Remember that work experience comes in a lots of different forms, not just from being in an office.
Hiring managers know that they'll be looking at your full body of work, which includes volunteering, extracurricular activities, school projects, and sports.
So take note of the things that you've done and how you can apply them to a different setting.
Finally, tip five is be yourself.
Authenticity is your greatest asset, and it's what people will remember most.
