Guest: Tanya Menon, PhD, Associate Professor of Management and Human Resources, The Ohio State University You know how, on Facebook, you tend to see posts from the same people over and over again? Well Facebook is feeding us what its algorithms predict we want to see. And it’s a proven thing that we naturally prefer to interact with the same circle – in real life and online. These people tend to be similar to us in thoughts – even in appearance, often. When it comes to getting a job or progressing in life, though, we’d do well to break out of our bubble on occasion. Tanya Menon argues that it doesn’t have to be scary or painful. She’s a professor of Management and Human Resources at The Ohio State University. Her popular TED Talk is called “The Secret to Great Opportunities? The Person You Haven’t Met Yet.”
