It's time to finally start networking but you just can't get yourself to do it. - You're looking for a job and everyone says to network and get referrals - You work remotely and would welcome some watercooler chat and a friendly debate about fruit on pizza - You're learning to code and you want to make friends with other people in tech - You crave community + connection - You have a lot to share and/or like to support others All excellent reasons to quit lurking and join the conversation! But. Maybe you’re shy, anxious or feel awkward about posting on social media or in communities like Discord and Slack. Maybe you don’t know what to post and you’re overwhelmed by the thought of figuring it out. Or maybe you’re a super private person and you actually don’t WANT to share about yourself. Let artist-turned-dev Melissa Averinos help you think differently about networking. You’ll learn ways to post and interact online that suit your personality and isn't cringe.
