So many people think networking is simply putting yourself out there or “schmoozing” your way into an opportunity.
But networking is a true art form. It’s a process in which you make contacts that don’t just get you your next job, but may help you get the one after that or the one after that. It’s an experience in which you help others as much as they help you.
And it’s something that’s worthy of a strategy.
That’s right, just as you need a strategy to find a new job, you need a networking-specific strategy to maximize your network opportunities.
How do you do that?
That’s where this Entrepreneur article comes in, identifying three questions you should ask when considering how to network. Here’s a glimpse at the questions:
- Who are my best prospects?
- Where can I meet my best prospects, or people who can introduce me to my best prospects?
- Who, exactly, so I want to meet?
You really need to read the whole article to get the impact of these three questions. But as a Career Coach, I’m confident in telling you that you need to seriously consider these three questions!
