In order to have a conversation with somebody you have to tell us what you want to cover, not too sure, we recommend you start with “Professional Development – General Networking” for your first Lattitude conversation!
This is necessary so that our matching algorithm can help match you with other people and it also helps other users find you!
Navigate to “Topics” tab
Add a topic of interest – go ahead and start typing and it will show you the options
What if I don’t see a topic that fits me?
Great question. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it for you (soon you will be able to add your own)
What if I want to add more than one interest?
Wise you are! Go ahead and click “add” again, but let’s get through this one first
Choose a subtopic – this just helps us hone in on the best match for you a little bit more
Choose your self-rating level (1-5), are you a (1) small leaf with little experience on the topic? Are you a (5) wise tree and perhaps a subject matter expert?
This helps us with the matching algorithm and gives you the best experience as well
What if I am a 5, can I still be a mentee and learn?
Heck yes! That is what makes Lattitude so cool, we never stop learning and we always pay it forward, no matter how successful we become.
Type in the years of experience you have on this topic. It is not a competition, this just helps other users understand more about you before the conversation starts
Tell us why it’s a topic of interest to you (think of this as micro level overview where your bio is the macro detail)
Some users will add details such as:
