In Marisa’s case, it will be based on taking advantage of her outgoing, engaging and interactive personality. She has the perfect personality and networking skills (not shy) to build up a network here in Ottawa and become better known. Meetup and Eventbrite are two easy and logical next steps. What needs to complement those efforts is ensuring that her online profiles - LinkedIn and other tools match the person with whom I spoke. Like many people, these what's there now does not represent the strong, engaging and energetic person I met. And that’s the person any company would hire immediately.
