Introduction to Networking

Like it or loathe it, personal networking is an essential business skill, and young professionals have no choice but to network. The great news is that there are reliable ways to cultivate and improve the foundational skills that make networking work. 

Networking is a tricky blend of business and pleasure. On the one hand, you’re breaking bread, telling stories, and participating in cordial exchanges. On the other hand, you’re looking for people of value to your work, seeking out opportunities, and attempting to show yourself in a favourable professional light. Balancing all of this is difficult, and it has only become harder with increasing online engagement.
