Explore!
• Set the stage for ‘luck’; planned happenstance
• Even 5 minutes a day can help you focus,
learn, prepare, connect; share with others-
reciprocal; how can you be helpful?
• Discover: who can you talk to for Information,
Advice and Referrals?
• Brainstorm: what obstacles do you foresee,
and how can you overcome those?
Amanda Peters | Twitter: @acpeters #MaGreenCareers @masustain
What is needed in the industry you
want to enter?
Where are your gaps?
Amanda Peters | Twitter: @acpeters #MaGreenCareers @masustain
• Be strategic- set time aside, including time to
reflect. Set goals.
• Start now
• Practice communicating your value
• Keep track of your explorations and follow up
• Focus off-line more than on-line, but….

What small steps can you take to
learn more?
Amanda Peters | Twitter: @acpeters #MaGreenCareers @masustain
• Connect to me on LinkedIn and tailor your message (let me
know if you want relevant handouts)
• Jot down a ‘one sentence’ that could describe your career
goals
• Talk to at least one presenter or exhibitor today and follow
up after the event
• Before you leave this room, introduce yourself to someone
you don’t know. Ask them a question about their work and
interests. Ask them what brings them here today.
• Take a quiet 5 minutes and jot down the employers already
in your mind who inspire you…..ask people you talk to for
ideas for others that fit your interests
