A recent Blog entry by Steven DiMaio struck home for me personally because I have a wide variety of skill sets and a large number of work experiences. This is usually a very good thing because I can usually make connections between disparate tasks and industries striking to the heart of issue quickly providing resolution to an issue and it also shortens ramp up time when learning new things. But it can be a bad thing when you are trying to concisely present yourself to a prospective employer or client or even take advantage of a networking opportunity.
Networking lunches are an interesting beast – neither fish nor fowl. You sit on one side of the table with an air of quiet desperation while your counterpart across the table hunkers down hoping to survive the next inevitable round of layoffs. At least that’s the way it feels to me sometimes.
