The Millennials Corner

32nd Edition of
The Millennials Corner:

Want to Grow Your Business? Try Networking!
By Emma Wolff 

Gathering with a group of people to expand and strengthen your career and learn new skills…now that’s an interesting concept. If only there was a name for that. Oh yeah, it’s networking! Networking has a variety of benefits including gaining knowledge from industry leaders, making connections with like-minded people, and raising your career profile. Do you want to know the best part of networking? It is super easy to find!

When joining a networking group chances are the program will include people with similar interests. By talking to event participants, you will be able to learn about experiences they’ve had, business skills that were useful in their company and exchange best-practices. Mingling will give you the opportunity to hear perspectives from many people about different topics – presumably in fields that you are interested in. Often, there will even be a guest speaker who will discuss their expertise.

At networking events, don’t be afraid to ask for the opinions of others on ideas you have, too. This is a great opportunity to address challenges you are having with mentors and experienced professionals. Not only could you get good feedback, but you could also gain constructive criticism in order to make your ideas even better.

Peoria in Progress...

Can a contemporary urban city still feel like a small town?
The City of Peoria was recently featured in the magazine ElevateAZ. From our humble beginnings to the courageous plans for our future, Bruce Farr captures many of the characteristics that make Peoria so unique and exceptional.

“I want to be sure Peoria has a future that has employment corridors in it, places where our children can say, ‘I want to work there when I finish my education. I want to come back and raise my family in Peoria.’”
 - Mayor Cathy Carlat
