We're super excited today as it is our anniversary! It has been exactly two years since the first episode of You've Got 5 Options has been aired!. We started recording the episodes in our bedrooms, then have moved to the local radio station, then we became a TV program and now we're about to record our show on TEDx Aarhus! Tune in to go back with us to hear our most memorable moments and discuss how hard and fun can it be!
There is something rotten about LinkedIn and people start to notice. Is the platform dominated by well organized groups of branding “specialists”, pseudo-influencers and self appointed mentors who are scamming job seekers or is it just “another conspiracy theory”? Join us for today’s episode where we discuss this and many other employment-related topics with job consultant and Danish labor market expert Greete Eluri.
If we were to bet any money on any young band becoming big, we would bet it on today’s episode Artist of the Week. KALASET is an “indie rock garage band” formed by 5 high-schoolers that started with playing covers and within one year smoothly transitioned to songwriting. Tune in and listen to their song, stories, musical guilty pleasures and tips for overcoming stage fright. And when they soon become really famous, remember that you’ve heard them first on You’ve Got 5 Options Radio Show!
Was Britney Spears president’s Bush secret agent? Who is Mambe & Danochilango? Can you go back on the stage and play a kick-ass gig when your twin babies are only 2 months old?

These, any many more interesting (and bizarre) questions only on You’ve Got 5 Options Radio Show!
In Part 2 of “How to become a better networker using LinkedIn Local” we have discussed: How did Cathy manage to attract guests from Copenhagen and even from Ireland (!!!) to visit her LinkedIn Local events? What “Landing like a butterfly” and “dancing Cha-Cha” has to do with people remembering you for the right reasons? Why it may be better to focus on who you are than on what you do? What “networking games” is Cathy using at her events in order to facilitate a better experience for participants? And Many More!
Cathy Perez is not only a natural-born networker and an event organizer but also a woman with a purpose and a worthwhile mission at heart: To connect and to inspire people. Born and raised in Philippines, with 8-years experience of living in China (where she managed to learn how to order a taxi and make groceries’ shopping… in Chinese!), a couple of years ago, Cathy moved to Denmark for her now-husband. In Scandinavia she has experienced a cultural shock - living all her life in huge cities she has found herself in a small Danish town where she wasn’t initially able to build any connections. When after some time, Cathy and her husband moved to Arhus, she has decided to do something about it and OH, SHE DID! Inspired by a post about LinkedIn Local in Australia, together with Kotryna Kurt they have decided to organize the very first meeting of this kind in Arhus and… the rest is history!

How to use internet (but not in a creepy way ;)) to build connections in the new country?
