Networking – why you need to keep meeting people

Networking by meeting other people is one very necessary endeavour that has just got to be done and done without end and by someone in your team. This very valuable exercise is for your benefit; to further your career and make you more successful in every conceivable way.

Good and productive networking is certainly a craft that takes time to develop and should not be taken without serious intent. Good, productive networking is not about going to parties and music industry gatherings, meeting people and exchanging contacts. Once you have these contacts you bombard them with unnecessary calls or relentlessly name drop them when you’re engaged in other conversation for you to appear more connected and influential than you really are. That’s what most networkers do and this is not professionals network with a pre planned and very specific purpose.
