Looking for a job (or a job promotion)?

We have all heard that it is not what you know, but who you know. That means that
your connections are important to your success. Many companies identify potential
job candidates through referrals from their employees.


How do you get the opportunity to make those contacts and build strong relationships,
while allowing others the opportunity to see  your talents and  enthusiasm in action…. 
your initiative and willingness to get things done…..your
ability to work as a team player?  

In the past, people would attempt to bond by taking someone to lunch, drinking at bars or
playing golf. Some would try to make connections  at networking events, where the purpose is to meet as many people as possible. However, strong relationships are built slowly .

    Targeting young professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40sTulsa Area United Way’s Emerging Leaders Society is working to shape the next generation of philanthropists.

    However, you have to pay $250 to join. Puh-leeze! People can do volunteer work without having to pay anything!

    The story says:“This is an opportunity for young professionals to connect with community leaders they otherwise wouldn’t have access to and to learn from them.”
    People, pay attention. You can volunteer without having to pay money to join a “society” to volunteer! You will meet like minded people.

    The story states that Megan Weinkauf, a recruiting manager with Acctknowledge, who has been in the Emerging Leaders Society since it started in 2013 said. “I know my generation and younger, we don’t know how to get involved.This is a gateway to learning about philanthropy.”She said being a full-tier member in a mentor in the program has helped her both professionally and personally.“It really opens your eyes to things you never knew existed,” she said.
    It is very simple. Figure out where your interest is and volunteer there. It isn’t rocket science!
