Just go alone!
Name: Marlene Merz-Gütersloh
Occupation / Company: student and intern at one of the big4 accounting firms (tax)
Key Achievement: started networking / going to events alone
Networking insight that blew my mind:
I want to tell you about my first networking experience, I went to a networking workshop from the Frankfurt Finance Club and got the chance to listen to networkx’s founder Dr. Priscilla Schelp. It was a super interesting evening and I learned so much that day!
The result now is: I am a Gen Z Advisor at networkx and in reverse I get mentored by Dr. Priscilla Schelp and I can’t be thankful enough for this opportunity! If I decided that day that I don’t go because I don’t know the people that much at the event, all of this would not have happened. So, jump over your shadow and seize the opportunities that come your way.
And always remember, just be yourself!
Favorite Club (and what you love most about it): Club des Affaires de la Hesse, I love the atmosphere at the events and the people are so friendly and welcoming! :)
