I'll let you in on a secret, almost everyone thinks their network isn't big enough or strong enough to help them land their ideal role. But you (and a ton of other people) are wrong! Studies have shown that it's actually not the people closest to us, the people you likely think of when you think of your network, that can help you advance in your career. It's actually the friends or friends that really make things happen. Skeptical? Confused? In this week's episode, Tanya discusses how she used her network to land a job abroad at her dream organization!
