So I am relative new in my career, and I just secured a long-term internship with a small company. I have 2 leaders, lets call them X (the guy) and Y (the woman)
The guy rarely chit-chats-- he seems super focused on his work, he always dresses professionally, he seems up-to-date with the latest developments in his fields, the only time he ever talked to me was when I was giving my presentation on some tech I was researching
The woman in contrast is always talking about personal stuff-- her family life, her living situation, her political views. I can ever search up her social media accounts ( they came up when I was googling her involvement in a deal) and know all about her family, her dog etc.
Conversely, he seems very private...he only has a LinkedIn, all other social media is private. You can find nothing about his family, his political view, whether he is married etc.
So which approach can help me accelerate in my career?
