5 Reasons Networking Actually Isn’t Helping Your Career Go Anywhere
Most people don’t understand the power and impact a strong professional network can provide to their lives. The bottom line is your network is the most valuable asset you have as a job-seeker, employee, or manager — so long as it is diverse, strategic and nurtured. What do I mean by all these buzzwords? Let me give you an example. When I host a party at my home I am always interested in how I can add value to a friend’s life. Recently, I was talking with a new friend who had just taken the bar exam after law school and was looking for full-time opportunities. I immediately thought of all the other lawyers that were at my house at the time and made it a point to introduce them to each other throughout the night. I love helping people connect like that. It has almost become a game to me at this point. Kind of like, “Tell me something you need or want to happen because I probably know someone in my network who can help you make it happen.”
