We’ve all heard the famous saying, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” While the accuracy of that statement can certainly be argued, the value of networking holds true. If you’re looking to connect with fellow professionals in your industry, consider these simple networking tips:
• Use social media. With LinkedIn, Twitter and other platforms, you can engage with contacts without the pressure of a face-to-face meeting.
• Ask questions. Instead of talking about yourself, ask for advice or dive deeper into a colleague’s background.
• Follow up. Continuing to stay in touch will only make your relationship stronger.
