Career development is not only about finding a new job, but it also covers your advancement in the current organization, and both need networking!
How many jobs have you applied online on the company’s website and or job-search sites? What is your success rate?! How many times you’ve skipped your company’s annual gathering? Boring isn’t it!
Truth is landing a new job through the normal way isn’t working theses day and getting the promotion you looking for through your annual performance outcomes will take you longer time than you think.
What is networking?
In your day to day activities, when you need something you ask a friend, family member, and or coworker. You seek information from your circle of connection. The same way goes if someone needs an accountant, the employer most likely starts asking his circle of connection for a referral. A circle of connection is the simple definition of a network. Networking is building and expanding your circle of connections for your success.
Networking is not only a career subject, I cover the same in my life coaching sessions with my clients who are looking to expand, enhance and grow their connections and relations with people in success and a healthy manner.
What is professional networking?
