Get Results Networking

By Roy Young

If you are one of those people hate to network and avoid it at all costs, all you have to do is change how you approach it! Even introverts can network. It’s just a matter of finding the type of networking that works best for you. Networking is not about building a mammoth list of contacts or passing out business cards like you’re dealing poker. Networking simply means building mutually beneficial relationships. Many people see networking as a waste of time because immediate and tangible results are difficult to attribute to your networking activities. It also can take longer than you want to see results. And, sadly, some people won’t be receptive to your requests to network. But as long as you don’t expect instant results and adapt networking to meet your personal style, you can do it! Switch your mindset and find ways to make networking a regular part of your long-term strategy. Your career depends on it.
