Networking is an opportunity to build a web of connections with individuals throughout your life. At different points in time, certain relationships could become important to your social or professional life. Networking for professional purposes is tapping into the knowledge, information, and connections that others have to offer you as it relates to your career goals. It is also being willing to do the same for others.
Networking does not have to be scary or intimidating! It is a natural process of using your curiosity and career goals to connect with others. You don’t have to create a network overnight. Building your network is a lifelong process, and you will naturally be more focused on developing these relationships and reaching out to specific individuals when you’re starting your career or facing a career transition.
