Hello! I am a recent English B.A. and M.Ed. graduate looking for a job in educational media. Do you have any advice for networking?
Advice for networking in the educational media area...Luckily, it's a pretty small area, so you'll start to hear the same names and meet the same people over and over. First of all, join CMA -- Children's Media Association. It's worth the cost. Go to all their events, especially any that might pertain to what you are doing. Also, look for events regarding children's books - usually these events involve authors and editors, and sometimes even the rest of the industry. Go to events that involve anything career-related, even if it's only tangentially connected to what you're interested in. And pick one good event, like the Sandbox Summit and try to meet people there. If there are any particular people you'd like to meet, try to set up an informational interview. Hope this helps.

I started my job in December not expecting to be in charge of day to day operations at our administrative office. Working for a small company, my co-worker (who is also 23) and I report directly to the owner. I was hired because of my extensive experience, but, because of my age and how old I was when I started, I don't always feel comfortable taking the reigns. "Fake it 'till you make it" is definitely becoming my new mantra!

Have you ever work with someone you just don't like at all? How would you manage the situation if the things become personal?
Absolutely. Chances are that all of us will at some point have to work with someone who we don't see eye to eye with. The most important thing that you can do is keep it professional by focusing discussions on common goals and progress against those goals. If you are working together, you are on the same team, and your success depends on one another, so don't forget that and don't let him/her forget that either. Constantly reinforcing the fact that you are aligned around the same goals should help keep everyone in their lane and moving forward. If that ceases to work, then the best thing to do is to ask the person if they would be open to a mutual feedback session in the spirit of working together optimally as a team. Sometimes it becomes best to address it head on by saying something like, "We both know that we haven't been seeing eye to eye lately but given that we are on the same team and could be phenomenal together, I would love to take 15-20 minutes to share feedback with each other and work out the best way to work together." This will allow you to get everything out on the table - after all, it is very difficult to dislike someone who you know well. The more you both try to see things from each other's perspective and stay focused on the fact that you are on the same team, the better. Good luck !

How do you find the motivation/inspiration to consistently blog? I keep starting one but never keep it up as well as I would like to.
It's something that I absolutely LOVE to do. I look at people who run every day and wonder how they find the motivation to lace their sneakers up every morning. I think it's something that either works or doesn't work. You can also find a cadence that works for you. Maybe you always blog on Sunday nights... or Mondays and Wednesdays. Definitely don't put the pressure on yourself to blog more frequently than you can handle. Do what feels right with you!

What are your favorite tips for maintaining a balanced lifestyle while still achieving career success?
I think that it's ok to work really hard earlier in your career, especially if you're trying to start your own company. You may end up working 16hr days but you're incredibly empowered and the learning curve is exceptional. Right now I'm skewed more towards a lot of work, but that is mainly because I enjoy my job so much. When you find something you love, it becomes less of an issue.

What advice do you have for focusing on your own professional development and success without comparing yourself to others?
Well, if you're focusing too much on others, it might mean you aren't fully enjoying what you're doing. When you're truly happy with your work, it engages you and keeps your attention there. So ask yourself if you are really in the right spot, right field etc. Also, it's not so terrible to sometimes focus on what other people are doing. Are they better at networking than you, better at asking people to open doors than you, better at gutsily going after stuff? Maybe what's secretly "bugging" you about about them is that they're taking steps that, deep down, you know you should be taking. Let them inspire you.

As a senior in college, I want to begin my job search now! What advice do you have for someone who is looking for a job 10 months out?
Read Reid Hoffman's "The Startup of You" - it will help you focus on the intersections of your passions, your expertise and the market. Once you figure out where that intersection might be, start mining your network of friends and family, including college/university alum. Even if you have no idea about the job or industry you want to be in, interviewing a number of people with whom you already have relationships to better understand the ins and outs of what they do and what a newbie to that world might expect in an entry level position. And through it all, be curious and open to possibility: you might have never thought of working in x country/city/state in x type of job, but it might turn out to be super amazing! and even if it isn't, you've hopefully will learn a bunch about yourself and what you should (or shouldn't) do next. Good luck!
