Stop Doing This When Making an Email Introduction

Stop Doing This When Making an Email Introduction

Last weekend I was walking with my best friend and we were talking about work, careers and what it means to be a better female leader (a frequent topic between us) when something she said hit me like a pile of bricks. 

“You know what I’m completely sick of?” she said. “I’m so frustrated with people who make networking introductions via email without asking first.” 

And my light bulb went off — I do this ALL THE TIME. And she’s completely right. I also get frustrated when people do this to me and I didn't even realize it until just then. 

As an example, I often get email introductions without any explanation as to why I’m being connected with this new person and without first being asked if I even have time to meet someone new. As a result, I’m often faced with the uncomfortable (and sometimes awkward) challenge of figuring out…does Contact B want to hire me, pick my brain, ask me something specific, take me to coffee, be a potential partner/collaborator, or do they just want to be my friend? Should this be a phone call, a coffee, a lunch or a happy hour? Do I even have time for this connection? And now I'm on the spot and not sure how to proceed. 

So here's what you do -- make the ask before you make the introduction

    How to Elevate Your Value in the Marketplace

    How to Elevate Your Value in the Marketplace

    If you’ve been following me long enough, you’ve probably heard me say more than once, “it takes work to find work.” And this is becoming increasingly more true as the nature of work evolves and technology advances. 

    Not only do you have to be excellent at what you do, but you also have to be a great copywriter, publicist and marketer to excel in up-leveling your career. There’s the resume, the job applications, the personal website, the cover letters, the personal brand, the networking, the SEO, the keywords…let’s face it — it’s a ton to keep track of. 

    When I work with my clients, we focus on four key areas to elevate their earning potential in the marketplace (i.e., make more moolah and have a greater impact).

    The Hell of Networking: Learn From the Broad Experience

    I love podcasts because I can listen and learn on the go, while getting ready in the morning or cleaning the house.

    My latest podcast obsession has been The Broad Experience, a conversation about women, workplace and success hosted by Ashley Milne-Tyte, a British-born writer and public radio reporter based in New York.

    Each podcast is a short 15-30 minute episode on topics such as “When Women Work for Free,” “Women in Technology,” and “Emotions at the Office.”
