Entertainment industry veteran Shanti Das has written yet another book that packs a powerful pocket-sized punch with The 1,2,3s of Networking (Press Reset Entertainment Publishing; $7.99), detailing how to successfully build your professional network.
The author of The Hip-Hop Professional: A Woman’s Guide to Climbing the Ladder of Success (PressReset.me Publishing; $19.95), offers 30 tips in her new book on how to expand your professional contact base, with insight on when to introduce yourself, how to prep your elevator pitch and how to strengthen relationships with those already in your everyday circle.
Das, who has held positions in the executive suites of labels including Universal Motown, keeps the advice snappy and to the point and tailors it for anyone at any stage of their career — whether you’re a mid-level executive needing a quick refresher before a power lunch or a college student heading to that on-campus job fair.
