In this solo episode, Masha the Quirky Qonfidence Qoach provides 7 simple steps to reach out to people for career/life advice, to make connections, to thank people for something they’ve made or done, or to follow up after meeting someone.
Congratulations, you got grad school interviews! And now they're coming up and maybe you're freaking out because you don't know how to prepare. Scariest yet, you're going to be meeting tons of people and you may not be sure what you're going to talk to them about or how to best use the opportunity you have.
Has the inauguration made the reality of the new president finally set in and you're having trouble dealing?
A lot of us are struggling right now with coming to terms with the poor decisions and constant insensitivity of the new presidential regime. Maybe you already live with anxiety and/or depression. Or maybe this is new to you and you're blindsided by your new emotions (or your disturbing lack of emotions).
So, you got a grad school interview, or maybe 2 (or 5? You're going to be tired!).
First of all, huge congratulations! Tons of people apply to each graduate program and just the fact that you got an interview is already a great sign.
But now you might be feeling nervous because now you're actually going to be meeting the very people who will ultimately decide whether you get to go to grad school.
