OUT PROFESSIONALS AND THE NYU LGBT ALUMNI NETWORK PRESENT AN INTERACTIVE NETWORKING WORKSHOP WITH JIM ARNOFF.
On Thursday, May 12, you are invited to take part in the interactive workshop “Networking for Powerful Results, Pitching with Ease: A Talent Agent’s Take,” with NYU faculty member Jim Arnoff, an attorney and Certified Life/Career Coach to the entertainment industry.
A co-presentation of Out Professionals and the NYU LGBT Alumni Network, this event takes place at the King Juan Carlos Center of NYU, on Washington Square.
According to Jim Arnoff, “Even the sound of the word ‘networking’ intimidates. Shyness and insecurity surface, along with a perceived need to prove yourself. Yet to achieve career success, we must each somehow expand our contacts and enhance our visibility.”
Jim aims to help you create your own stye of networking by banishing any shyness or insecurity and embracing your uniqueness. He supplies you with the tools to connect quickly, interact memorably and follow up effectively.
This immersive, interactive workshop is designed to provide:
- An awareness of networking fears and the strategies to turn them around.
- Ways to build confidence by whole-heartedly embracing uniqueness.
- Tips on making the initial approach — one-on-one or in a group.
- Techniques to turn a first meeting into a sustained relationship.
- A master plan towards becoming a master of networking.
