Last month, I talked about the value of networking with a broad range of insurance industry professionals and attending conferences. This month, I’m turning my attention to helping younger professionals network with their peers. As much as those of us with established careers are willing to be teachers and mentors, the reality is that younger professionals in every industry can be hesitant about reaching out to those more senior. We like to think of ourselves as approachable or great teachers, but that may not be the way we’re perceived. Or, the younger person who would like to find a mentor or ask questions isn’t in the same department or office, which makes establishing a relationship a challenge.
