Thank you for attending, and keep in touch! Here is a post with all our/my social media links!
To bring Jen to your university, company, or organization, go here.
To ask Jen a question, feel free to email, but one good way to ask is also our Tumblr.
I got asked a lot of good questions this evening, including:
How do I keep in touch with a mentor without being annoying?
How do I show professors that I’m interested in them and their work without it being obvious that I just want a recommendation?
How can women talk about their accomplishments without being considered a bitch?
How do you build your network and try to help people as they help you if you’re part of a group — such as African-Americans in the workplace — that is sometimes pitted against each other or reluctant to team up?
People keep telling me I’m too opinionated and I talk too fast and it turns people off. What do I have to do about it, or can I keep being a special angry unicorn? (This guy and I have a lot in common.)
It looks like I have a lot of new articles to write.
