Last week our members attended Zooming to Success: Soft Skills in a Virtual World and found the event exciting and informative. The knowledge students gained helped them better navigate the post-COVID professional world and the breakout rooms gave them a chance to network with professionals.

Interesting fact: do you know what the 7-38-55 rule is? The rules of personal communication, Claudio Diaz of Briggs & Veselka explains, governs the importance of verbal and nonverbal signals. 7% of communication is verbal, 38% is tone of voice, and 55% is nonverbal. Furthermore, we discussed how crucial feedback from your peers and organization can help boost your confidence and skills.

One of our attendees asked a valuable question: how important is luck in achieving success? Claudio, Joe Jett of EY, and Chris Gervasio of ExxonMobil agreed that success is opportunity and timing. Therefore, when a great opportunity is knocking at your door, what are you waiting for?
