Mark Herschberg is the author of The Career Toolkit, Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You. From tracking criminals and terrorists on the dark web to creating marketplaces and new authentication systems, Mark has spent his career launching and developing new ventures at startups and Fortune 500s and in academia. Beyond this Mark is a MIT instructor, multiple degree holder (B.S. in physics, a B.S. in electrical engineering & computer science, and a M.Eng. in electrical engineering & computer science). He is also one of the top-ranked ballroom dancer and a cuff-link aficionado!

Mark's computer science focus was in cryptography, and if you checked out our chat with Dan some episode's back, I had to ask his opinion on bitcoin, and the blockchain!

Beyond that fun segment we talk about what Mark thought he would be doing as a kid, and how his past experiences led to where he is today. We talk specifically about:

  • Why you need a career plan and how it can benefit you
  • How to network during COVID
  • How to maintain relationships with colleagues
  • How the pandemic may have been a HUGE positive rather than a negative for networking
  • The 3 steps to create effective meetings
  • The types of groups you should be looking for
  • How you should deal with conflicts with your boss, and decide how to maneuver
  • and more!
