Sample Interview Questions to Ask John Corcoran

Here are some sample interview questions you can ask John Corcoran:

About networking:

1.    So many people HATE networking because it feels too “sleazy.” What advice do you have for people who really don’t feel comfortable networking?

2.    A lot of people say they should just let their friendships and relationships evolve organically – that everything will take care of itself. You say people should be intentional and startegic about how you develop your network (rather than letting your network “happen to you”). Why?

3.    How do you know what organizations you should be joining to meet the right people who will help your career?

4.    What advice do you have for someone who is just starting out, or who just graduated, who wants to build their network but they really don’t know anyone yet?

5.    What advice do you have if you feel like you “have nothing to offer” people who are much more successful?

6.    Sometimes you meet someone new and the conversation just dies. What advice do you have for making sure you are having interesting conversations with new connections?

7.    How do I know who I should be talking to at a networking event or a cocktail party?

8.    What advice do you have for following up with people you meet? Are there any “hacks” or shortcuts?

9.    How do we know if our networking is making a difference and achieving results? Is there any way to measure it?

10. How do you use social media in a way that is not a waste of time?
