Networking Lunches

Saturday, June 9, 2012
I don't really get to enjoy the true meaning of Summer Fridays yet (off by 1 pm and getting an early start to the weekend), but yesterday I did train it into the city to have lunch with a fellow alumni and professional. For anyone whose in the same boat as me and is desperately searching for a job I would highly recommend asking to grab coffee with someone who works in your field of interest. I contacted this woman through LinkedIn and she was so friendly and suggested we grab lunch at the Blue Dog Cafe. She gave me excellent advice on how she got her start in fashion and assured me that I don't have to stress about finding "my dream job".   

I wore a chunky necklace from Kate Spade, with my Brandey Melville cream shirt, and gray printed pants from Free People. I looked put together but not overly dressed. Even if you have to pay $20 for a round-trip 45 minute ride into the city, it's worth it to network. Not to mention it was b-e-a-u-tiful in New York yesterday. I could walk that city for years and never get tired of it.
