How to Approach Networking the Right Way

So many executives, especially older ones, stumble in their job search efforts because they are reluctant networkers. At the upper levels, landing your next great opportunity usually is the result of networking so you really don’t want to neglect the topic, no matter how reluctant you may be.

At the executive level, over 80% of jobs are found through networking, so no matter how difficult/time-consuming/distasteful/”just not your thing” you may consider it, for career success you need to engage in networking. And you’ll want to do it the right way for it to be effective.

Listen to two ExecuNet Career Strategists, Mark Brodsky and Harriette Lowenthal, talk about approaching networking the right way, especially when you’re an older executive, in this  excerpt from How to Overcome Age Bias in Your Job Search, a Premium Access exclusive session of ExecuNet Master Class.
