Networking is one of the best ways to find a job, discover new prospects, and grow your career. When done incorrectly, it’s one of the easiest ways to waste your time.
Everyone knows networking is important, but despite their best efforts, many people consistently go about it the wrong way. Much more than simply the means to land a new job or grow a client list, networking is the lifelong practice of building mutually beneficial relationships.
From focusing too much on collecting business cards to failing to help others, avoid these common networking mistakes and your hard work will finally start paying off.
