The value & benefits of networking the right way can’t be emphasized enough so here are some crucial tips on how to go about it:
Don’t limit your networking efforts to business occasions only - Look beyond your immediate work industry and use social media & virtual events to your advantage.
Don’t expect immediate results - Avoid waiting until you need something to forge relationships. Work on developing your network every day by deepening the connections you’ve already made.
Don’t give up, even if those you meet aren’t able to help you - Maintain your network, be grateful for your contacts, and your attitude ultimately will lead to new opportunities.
