How to Build a Good Relationship With Your Professor (Ep. 157)

We’ve talked a lot about the power of networking.

Networking is powerful enough to land you job opportunities, friends, respect in your field, or maybe even a letter of recommendation from your favorite professor.

But wait: you’ve never even spoken to your favorite professor. You’re also late to almost every class, and you usually just spend that time looking for Koroks on your shiny new Nintendo Switch.

Somebody’s not getting a recommendation (excellent gaming choices aside).

In this episode, we talk a bit about how to build a good relationship with that favorite professor of yours and anyone else you might need to convince you’re worth remembering after the semester’s over.

Enjoy!

Hey Tom, great episode, as always. 😀
I have a question about the topic: How do you connect with a professor when their office hours are only when you contact them by e-mail and schedule an appointment, and in a college without a possibility for extra credit activities?
Thank you so much, looking forward to your next post 😀
Cheers from your fans from Serbia, btw
