Networking: How & Why it’s important
Lynn Hazan with her intern, Madhuram Ravichandran conceptualized, designed, and built an interactive workshop on “Networking: How & Why it’s important – The human factor at work” for USARCENT at Shaw Army Airforce Base, SC.
The presentation touched on many facets of networking including leveraging strengths, affinity groups, how to be a successful networker, etc. The strategy and benefits of networking were discussed within the military context to enable participants (army leaders, civilians, soldiers, etc.) develop their unique human factor. The workshop also addressed prime topics like the importance of networking for women in the military to accelerate their career trajectory. This is a rare & insightful workshop unraveling the role of human relationships for professionals in the war zone too!

A Branding Workshop Testimonial
“Lynn’s personal branding workshop was great. I really enjoyed it and learned several new ways of distilling my experience. I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview — I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed “Calling Cards” and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn’s input and advice to be so helpful.”
“Lynn and I met at the PMI Chicagoland Career Conference in December of 2022. She was one of the presenters and did an excellent job speaking with enthusiasm, keeping everyone’s undivided attention, and sharing interesting facts and tips about careers in project management. I had a lot of takeaways from her talk and have already been utilizing the resources she provided.”
“Thank you very much for hosting tonight’s webinar, I really enjoyed and appreciated the knowledge I gained. The part of this process that I’ve enjoyed the most is the learning – as well as meeting successful industry folks like yourself – and this evening’s seminar exemplified that perfectly. What resonated was the importance and impact of tailoring your résumé to the job specs is one. It’s an example of that little bit extra effort it requires to make yourself stand out. Using this time to sharpen my technical skills is another. There were many others as well!”
A.R. (workshop participant)
“Lynn, thank you for a wonderful session tonight. I truly got a lot out of it and appreciate you taking the time to help me and others. I’m now working on the assessment suggestions you provided to refine my search for specific roles and target companies. You always put growth and development of your candidates and clients first to cultivate the most successful connections. I’m looking forward to getting the resource kit from the webinar to incorporate more tips and tricks. Thank you!”
M.S. (workshop participant)
I recently attended Lynn’s webinar on ‘how to work more effectively with a recruiter’ and was blown away by her profound knowledge of the subject matter. I was particularly impressed by the strategies she offers to overcome the differences between recruiter and candidate and bring harmony and common ground to each one’s expectations. I highly recommend her webinars and I’m preparing to work with her one-on-one, too. Thank you, Lynn!

Lynn and I recently connected through KMG for an interview. I had an amazing experience working with her. The kind of energy she brings on to the table is contagious. She is extremely sincere, detail oriented and patient. She focuses on improving students’ professional skills along with promoting a healthy symbiotic relationship while working. She is one of the finest, most transparent and experienced recruiters out there in Chicago. I eagerly look forward to collaborating with Lynn in the future. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any student/ job seeker to get in contact with her for advancement in their careers.
