Alumni Career Programs GWebinar: "Networking Like a Boss" (Online)

Location

Online via Zoom

Event Description

Picture this: You're at a networking event, starting a conversation with a new connection. You say "Hi!", they say "Hello!"... and then what? Join alumna Caroline Adegun, CCAS BA ’12, GSEHD MA ‘16, CEO of The Hollywood Wingwoman for this interactive, immersive, fun, and life-enhancing session (all personalities welcome!) for GW alumni where she will share tips on "Networking Like a Boss".

Being a great networker, having good social intelligence and conversation skills, and knowing how to build a diverse network gives you a huge advantage - whether you are looking to make new friends or are working in the corporate or entrepreneurial world. In our busy lives, networking is often thought of as a “nice to” not a “need to” activity. However, research shows that a large and diverse personal network, and a dedication to developing it, is one of top three characteristics of top performers.

Following Caroline's presentation, there will be time for live Q&A.
 

Presenter

CarolineAdegun.jpgCaroline Adegun, CCAS BA ’12, GSEHD MA ‘16, took it upon herself to shape her life according to her chosen path at a young age. With her expertise and exceptional ability to build relationships, Caroline landed a job in the corporate world as a Senior Recruitment Professional. However, after years of working in human resources, she began to realize how wide the gap is in the creative industry. As an artist herself, she was able to spot some struggles that continue to plague creatives around the world. And for this reason, Caroline left her career in the corporate scene to start building a non-profit organization exclusively designed for struggling artists and entertainers. Thus, her non-profit organization, The Hollywood Wingwoman, came into existence.

Dedicated to becoming a beacon of hope for struggling artists around the world, Caroline made it her life’s mission to provide a platform where she can help these individuals thrive in a competitive environment. So, just like silver linings on gloomy days, Caroline decided to create The Hollywood Wingwoman Talent – an avenue where creative individuals can run to whenever they are consumed and overwhelmed with failures and disappointments that the industry brings.
