Networking is one of those things that some of us just don’t love doing. While it seems like it comes really naturally to some people, there are others of us who would rather be doing just about anything else (waiting in line in the DMV sound good?). However, bottom line – as a professional, networking is something we can’t avoid. Regardless of what field you work in, or what role you have, building relationships is key to success. Consider – it’s not about being in “sales mode”. It’s about meeting people and showing them you’re someone worth knowing. Ask questions, see how you can help them and relationships may build naturally from there.
