Why is networking important!
70% of jobs are now found through networking
Up to 80% of jobs are not listed or advertised.
Why do we really network? We want something
What is wrong with this approach? Fear Anxiety Disappointment
Networking is all about me.
I need to make sure the other person knows everything about me as fast as possible in case I don’t get another chance.
Everyone cares what I have to say Everyone wants to hear my opinion
I am the best in the field so everyone wants to hear from me
I have the most experience so I am the most qualified for the job
What is the purpose of networking?
Be thought of as likeable.
Meet someone you can contact later on a favorable basis.
Make yourself referable.
Create a situation where you will be invited to speak.
