Networking Myths – Debunked!

24 May

Are you networking effectively? A recent blog appearing in Business Insider deflates FIVE misconceptions about networking, while giving great examples why building professional relationships is a must!

Among the issues raised are how networking is NOT annoying to those you speak with and how networking is NOT viewed as cheating.

Most importantly, the article points out that you DO NOT have to attend every networking event possible to gain a leg up in your job or client search. As the article mentions, “The best networking events are usually not called ‘networking events.’”

Instead of attending large events full of salespeople and desperate job-seekers, it is easy to network with someone with similar interests on a one-on-one basis. By scheduling a lunch through Down4Lunch you can easily connect with other people in your geographical area and in your field, all during your lunch break!
