Don’t Let Networking Feel “Icky”

A lot of people aren’t comfortable networking, especially when they need a job. The thing is, networking doesn’t have to be “icky” as one caller referred to it. It’s important to always be networking, especially when you don’t need something (a job) so that you’ve built up relationship collateral simply by knowing people and having done favors for them in the past. You’ve got to go to networking meetings, and more casual networking possibilities, looking to help others – not to get help for yourself. That mindset will bring help to you and is the key to networking success.

Listen to ExecuNet Career Strategists Don Weintraub and Andrea Briscoe talk about successful networking in this clip from a session of ExecuNet Master Class.
