Presenting Your Best Self When Connecting with Others

October 12, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm


Being able to build relationships (network) helps you develop resources necessary for your career development. It is critical to present yourself during these interactions with confidence, through understanding the difference between self-awareness versus bragging and in dealing with “imposter syndrome.”

During this seminar, presented by Tracy Costello, PhD (Career Coach and Professional Development Trainer at Coach4Postdocs), we will discuss tips and techniques for these topics and more, including email/LinkedIn etiquette and developing your “elevator pitch” when you meet someone in person or virtually.

After this presentation, you will be able to:

  • Identify potential challenges to connecting with others and developing your network
  • Proactively and positively own your experience (self-awareness) and be able to identify when imposter syndrome occurs and take steps to deal with its impact
  • Have a framework to reach out to others in a variety of settings and converse about your skills and experiences

We invite you to bring any questions you may have to be answered during the session!
