In the social group that I network in, it’s seemingly common place to go around the table and introduce yourself. Then people will add their whole resume as if it’s some sort of competition…
I argue it’s unnecessary to the extent that some do this and I suggest a way I could introduce myself, so the message is heard, it’s not an opportunity to sell yourself or compete…..keep it simple? This will also now be seen as my profile until further notice.
“Hi my name is Helen Caligiuri! I’m 40 something years old, straight, single, celibate, numpty with some crazy cat lady tendencies…”
Have I made my point?
