How do you network? ESP with the new wfh model. I joined my currently company an year ago and have not anyone in person except for a few people from the client side because of an offsite. Do you cold email people in your company? What about networking outside of your firm?

I ask the people I know for 2-3 other names of people they think I should know, then have a virtual coffee (even 15 min to start). Ask those folks the same thing and you can grow your network and deepen relationships with those you feel more of a connection to.


You just ask people for a few mins of their time to chat about xyz. It's easier now than it has ever been, albeit arguably less authentic.

ESP is definitely better than zoom.

Anyone ever deal with a “friendly chat” request by DOD/DCIS? Client was contacted, not subpoenaed, but they will tell him anything more than he’s a witness. I’ve figured out the litigation with which this is connected, but have never interfaced in this way (I’m crim def, this is a civil DOJ inquiry). Inclination is to call the officer and fish for info and otherwise set up a time to talk or shut it down if they’re not forthcoming at all)

BCG interviews coming up. I'm thinking about signing up for one of those prep programs because I feel like I am preparing without expert feedback, just the opinion of others who haven't really made it in yet.
I am considering two programs:
Management consulted black belt for $1400 (8 sessions)
Preplounge expert Francisco GYM program for $2000 (5 sessions)
This is a lot of money for me, but I really want the job and worry that my non-business background is in the way.
Any advice?
