Networking Your Way to Your Next Job

If you want to network like the pro's here are three action steps that I guarantee will improve your networking skills and help you get that next job.

  1. Develop a Plan: Define the goals you want to achieve from your network, the expertise you want to be known for, your target audience, and message. Write it all down and practice saying it.
  2. Develop Your Elevator Pitch: When you get someone on the phone you've got to be able to tell them who you are, how you got their name, what you do and what you want all in about 30 seconds. Write a script and practice with a friend.
  3. Be Polite and Always Offer to Help: Be polite, always ask permission to use someone's name, always close the loop with folks who've helped you, and always ask how you can help them.
