Because I believe so strongly in the value of networking – whether you are employed, planning your next move, or actively searching, I’ve invited good friend, colleague, and networking guru Wendy Terwelp to be my guest next Tuesday, March 20 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern to discuss the benefits of internal and external networking.
It’s not what you know; it’s who you know that gets you to the next level. We’ve all heard this phrase so many times our ears are bleeding, right? Whether you’re looking for a job or trying to get ahead in your career, networking is essential. How many times have you had someone use your name as a reference and you can’t remember who he or she is? When it’s time to make a move, you want to be prepared. Twenty-three percent of people land new careers through alumni – that’s employer alumni as well as collegiate.
In addition to maintaining external relationships, internal networks are important as well. When you need employees to buy into your strategic plan and annual budget, and yes adhere to them, it’s crucial to have established effective business relationships.
In this interactive teleclass, you’ll learn the “Top 10 Secrets to Turn Networking Pain to Career Gain” – including how to start a conversation. "Know anyone who…" is not always an effective opener. Learn which questions work best, which groups to join – and which not to, how to make the most of a networking event, and MORE.
If you have a burning question about networking you want answered in the call, email me and we’ll answer it next Tuesday.
