I am a big believer in networking. However to be effective at networking with others there is a right way to do it, and several mistakes to avoid. Why network? It is vital for you to begin to establish connections and to cultivate business relationships.
Even if an aspiring professional may not be in a advantageous position right now, you just never know what position someone might be in down the road to help you. You also might meet someone who can introduce you to the “Right Person”.
