I mentioned towards the end of my post on the value I’m getting out of my undergraduate degree that I was working on a new working relationship, and that I hoped that I wasn’t jinxing it by linking to them.
It turns out I wasn’t. (I will hopefully be able to link that to some article or another in the near future)
A lot of career advice I receive fits the template of “if you need something, ask for it.” This is completely related to the idea of the underdog: if you need something, you’re more than likely being restricted somehow, by some un-/imaginable force or another. And someone will help you if you show to them that you’re the underdog!
I learned that yet again, the hard way, this week. Instead of freaking out over funds for my musical (the new site has launched, by the way) for the past month, I could have asked my friends at UC Alumni for help: they were more than ready to help me make calls and find prospects.
So here’s a challenge to you: post a problem you’re having, either on your own blog or in the comments below, and ask for help. Link to their blog so they can hear about it — and, if you’re feeling frisky, link back here too!
For each one you do, I’ll add another. My first:
A bonus: I need help developing my idea for Ramit’s scholarship into a full-blown movement. If you’re curious in helping (I don’t think it will be too taxing on time, especially if enough people sign up), shoot me an email.
The idea itself will be posted here in the next 48 hours. Since, you know, that’s another thought for another day…
