Networking: Making it work for you
You’ve heard it time and time again: networking is key to one’s job search. Whether just starting out or mid-career, the common refrain elevates the act of networking to some sort of silver bullet, without which one’s career trajectory is limited.
There is much truth to that assumption. But considering the overabundance of “must-attend” events these days — and let’s be honest, some more tolerable than others — does that mean we must endure every networking opportunity for fear of missing out? Or can we be more discerning in the networking we do and how we approach it?
