Adulting 101:
How to meet cool people doing interesting things


12:00PM - 1:00PM

Virtual via Zoom


Connecting with people professionally is hard. How do we, as young professionals, expand ourselves and our connections without seeming ingenuine or, even worse, inexperienced? Jason and Amanda of 10InHouse will share their individual approaches to meeting cool people doing interesting things, making friends, and changing the world. Some call this “networking.” We hope this candid and realistic approach helps you to connect professionally in ways that matter.
