A full 70% of jobs are found through networking, and 40% of job seekers say they found their dream job through a personal connection.
So, building a strong network of connections is crucial to career success.
Build your network way before you need it.
Make networking a part of your everyday routine, rather than relying on it only when you are desperate.
There are always new people to meet and relationships to deepen.
Give before you take!
A “How can I help you?”- attitude builds trust into any relationship. It shows you care about a person and that you are backing your caring up with concrete action.
As Adam Grant, professor at Wharton and author of Give and Take has found, the people who give more than they take go further and experience more success.
