Unit 10 Discussion
Throughout this course, many discussion opportunities come
up where you need to respond to other people's opinions and comments. Respond
to your Discussion topic after you have completed your reading.
Topic: Global Networking
Growth in global business activity affects how employees and
associates from different organizations and within the same organization
network with each other. Use the internet to research how you might
successfully network with peers in other countries. One networking site that
may prove useful is LinkedIn. Another site that has career information is
Monster. Monster has links to job sites in other countries. One site that
offers information on the differences between cultures is ITIM International.
• For this
discussion, look at a specific country of your choice. Develop two brief
introductions, one for a U.S. peer, and one for a peer in another country of
your choosing. How would you introduce yourself, what would you say in two
sentences? How, or why, are the introductions different?
specific about how your approach to networking might be different based on a
specific culture. Pay special attention to any advice you find on what not to
do when networking with people from different cultures.
• Make a
note of two to three of the best ideas you find on the question, and report
them here. How might you use them in your own networking?
