Reasoned referrals
Professor of Management John Sullivan discussed the benefits of employee referral programs for a Sept. 20 Market Watch report. "The key is, you build a relationship on Facebook or LinkedIn. It could be about hiking or wine, but at some point you show them your work," Sullivan said. "Post your work on the Internet. Answer tough questions on a technical forum. The key is that relationship. Just finding you doesn’t make them want to refer you. It’s showing that work that really matters."

Telling tales
Associate Professor of Creative Writing Peter Orner was interviewed about his style of writing and teaching, and his new short story collection, Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge, for the Aug. 27 KQED Forum. "A lot of my stories I think come from stories that are repeated again and again in families. Why is that?... (It) is to somehow relive some intense experience. (Family stories) become myth -- they become our myths, our personal myths," Orner said. "People have said this before me, but we define ourselves by the stories we tell."
