Your Summary Sunday is a terrific resource, Hannah. We're always thrilled to be included.
I can't wait to see the reaction to your thoughts on Tours of Duty piece. This "Supertemps" discussion is going to be a hot topic -- and perhaps a way of life -- for quite some time.
9 months ago on Summary Sunday: Networking Like There's No Tomorrow
As you already know, I agree with you. Many of the standard chats -- those I used to enjoy quite a bit -- have gone more than stale. Every response is not only a soundbite, they are quite often a buzzword-ridden cliche. Sometimes I just want to shout out "Answer 113" or "Answer 34" because we all know what is coming next, and from whom. Worse yet: when a chat that is supposed to help a certain demographic or mission... and the only people in the chat are the self-proclaimed experts. In the career space, for instance, there are often very few job seekers in the chats!
I am also in the hypocrite camp, however. YouTern runs #InternPro on Monday nights. We're about 16 months in, and coming up with interesting, unique topics isn't easy. We do, however, spend hours developing not just the topic but the 8 questions we ask each Monday. In the creative process, every voice is heard, from the newest intern to the CEO.
One other major difference from chat to chat is the strength of the moderator. We, and now others like #OMCChat, do not allow self-promotion or sharing of links during the chat. When someone is answering only in cliches or "Answer 34", we gently remind everyone that this is a "no-fluff, cliche-free" zone. The moderator, ultimately, is responsible for the quality of the conversation... and there are some out there who take that responsibility seriously. Those are the chats I still enjoy.
One other thought I'll share: for those new to Twitter... and for those still building their online presence... Twitter chats remain an amazing experience. They aren't yet weary of the cliche answers; they don't yet know all the the weak players from the strong; and they don't know the fluff and froth from the practical and actionable. They will learn, in time... and then maybe they can join us who've grown tired of the experts and echo chambers congratulating each other for a great "Answer 113".

This is a great message, Dan. Family, friends, being creative and health would be 1 through 4 also. No. 5 on my list, as Brian discussed, is my work. I'm incredibly grateful for a career that keeps me energized, motivated and challenged -- and helps others, too. Thanks, Dan!

This is terrific advice CASUDI ... so practical, yet makes you think about what YOU want, instead of maybe how to keep up with trends or impress others. Well, done!

dbvickery At YouTern, we work with a lot of young talent. Being a morning person stationed on the west coast, it used to bother me quite a bit when I would beat an east coaster to work (virtually, of course). Not anymore. Between the early risers and late workers on both coasts, our business runs nearly 24/7 -- and not even on purpose. Gotta love it, right?
Thanks for your comment, Brian... enjoy the evening!

danielnewmanUV Appreciate the kind words, Dan... no go enjoy Halloween with those kids, yes?
shawmu Thank you, Shawn... glad you enjoyed (and love the evil laugh!)
This is a great post, MeghanMBiro... and not just for MBA grads; most points are spot on for just about everyone entering the workforce, currently looking for work or re-framing their careers. I particularly like No. 12. Tough (brave) advice, but so realistic -- and an absolute "must hear" in today's marketplace.

Love this post, tamcdonald ... and will share with our youtern audience as a "MUST READ" for networking. From beginners all the way up to those of us who do this daily (and too often forget some of what you say here) this is really good information told in a sincere way. Well done, Sir!
