Networking will make you Stand Out!
In the midst of a job hunt, networking with professionals on a daily basis can be extremely beneficial. You never who you will meet and what connections that person has. Being active in-person is just as important as being active and up-to-date on social media. Attending networking events and workshops are a great way to start. Search for local workshops and events based on your preferred field, show up and meet as many people as possible. It’s key to listen to others and see what you can learn from them. Pass out as many business cards as you can and think of ways to make yourself memorable. Being confident is great but be careful that your confidence is not mistaken for cockiness. Stand out and make significant connections.
Nowadays most jobs come from personal references so don’t limit your networking connections. Even after finding a job, it’s important you keep in contact with the network you build. You never know when you might need their help again or when your connections can help you grow in your career ladder. Stay positive and active. Now get out there and network!
