Being a big fan of Google Alerts, and a daily user of LinkedIn, I can’t wait to set up some searches!

5 Articles About Networking Worth The Read

Posted by in biz dev, Career, networking

With the hectic holiday season approaching, and all the opportunities for socializing and networking that go along with it, I wanted to share 5 articles I’ve come across that are definitely worth the read (yes, one is mine).

1) Here’s one about networking as “lifetime career insurance”

2) Quality versus quantity is always the way to go

3) Here’s one that discusses the difference between how men and women approach networking differently

4) The holiday season is NOT the time to pull back on your job search and with so many networking opportunities around them, it’s no wonder

5) What NOT to do while you’re out there networking this holiday season

Hope your takeaways from these help you enjoy the holidays just a little bit more. :-)

P.S. If you like this type of thing, you’ll love my book – I’m at a Networking Event–Now What???: A Guide to Getting the Most Out of Any Networking Event. Just sayin’…
