Friday Five: Five Truths About Networking
by Rich Jones - Aug, 2013
Networking is all the hoopla when it comes to finding new opportunities. There are 1,000 articles per day (+1 if you include this) on how to network effectively and why it’s important. I wanted to share five truths I’ve learned about networking. There are more, but I’ll leave those to you in the comments. The best time to reach out to people is when you don’t need them.

Does Networking Make You Feel Weighed Down?
by Valerie Sokolosky - Jul, 2013
Networking is essential to advertising your personal brand – and, as you may realize, networking is sort of like power walking. If you wear light workout clothing and athletic shoes made for the terrain you walk, you almost glide down the track or path. If you strap on leg weights, step into steel-toed boots and pile on heavy coats, you’ll cover less ground and add time to your walk. Here’s how to avoid moving in slow motio...
4 Steps To Getting Your Network To Say Yes To An Interview
by Kristin Johnson - Jul, 2013
Savvy job seekers know networking is essential to shortening a job search. The thinking is that it’s easier to get hired when your interviewer knows, likes, and trusts you. How do we know this to be true? Are employers really open to hiring people they meet at networking events? Every year, Career Directors International conducts its Global Hiring Trends Survey. In 2012, they asked this question: “If you met a job seeker t...
Easy & successful approach to networking
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2013
What’s the most important word in networking? Giving. In this tough job economy, many executives don’t take into consideration how easy it can be to give before receiving. It’s a constant struggle to look past the “what’s in it for me?” thinking. In my last blog we discussed the three categories of a typical composition of an executive’s network. Easy – which describes people who are easy to help, but may not be able to giv...
How to Succeed in Networking
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2013
Focus on giving. I realize that when an executive networks, they want something. So why do I start this blog out with “giving?” It is kind of like the “pay it forward” concept. The theory is if you help people with something that is important to them, they will be more inclined to help you. Establish and build a relationship, and the rest will fall into place. Most people don’t care about what you want or need. Yes, t...
The 5 Biggest Myths About Networking
by Pete Leibman - May, 2013
If you’re getting ready for graduation, or if you’ve already graduated but you’re looking for a new job, you probably know you need to spend a lot of time networking. But, do you really know what networking is and what it’s not? During my teenage years, I was painfully shy, and I thought networking was a practice used only by the elite and powerful, a group I definitely did not feel part of. What I learned was the opp...
Why You Should Always Be Getting and Keeping in Touch
by Rich Jones - May, 2013
Yesterday I put the finishing touches on a job description (JD) for an HR Intern — a position I’ll lead the recruiting on. The timing couldn’t be better given what I’ve been thinking and writing about lately. When I added the last pieces to the JD, my first thought wasn’t “where can I post this job?” It was “who do I know for this job?” Then I wondered which Twitter followers, Facebook friends, or blog readers might be in...
How To Network Naturally
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - May, 2013
“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” This Shakespearean quote resonates as I ponder the value of networking. If only networking were under the guise of a different name. Personally, I bristle when someone uses the word, ‘networking,’ an odd reaction considering the line of work I am in. I use the term, because of its universal appeal, but sparingly, as I believe there are better ways to articulate how to forge,...
Expanding Your Career Network – Does In-Person Networking Still Trump Virtual?
by Madeline Kronfeld - Apr, 2013
We attend networking events with the hope of exchanging business cards with dozens of new colleagues but it’s hard to meet everyone and hold a meaningful conversation before the night is over.
