PODCAST: Logger Alum Emma Britton Shares How to Make a Cold Networking Request

Chances are high that you’ve been told the importance of “networking” – connecting with folks in a professional context to learn more about an industry or role, to collaborate and share across contexts, and to build a community of colleagues.

And while you have an incredible built-in network of classmates, professors, supervisors, and Logger Alumni, if you’re looking to connect with someone with a very specific experience or perspective, you might need to use the “cold” networking request! Lucky for you, Logger Alum Emma Britton (Director of Career Services at the National University of Natural Medicine) is a pro and has lots of tips and tricks for you.

Emma was recently featured on the Mac’s List podcast, where she shares why and how you can grow your network intentionally through cold networking requests.

After listening, we’re sure you’ll feel inspired to take a first step to grow your own network! Make an appointment with a CES Career Advisor for help using LinkedIn and Logger Link to identify potential connections.
