What effective networking is really about

What effective networking is really about | Job Searching | Scoop.it

Everyone accepts the importance of networking. Many of us get our best work through personal introductions, or hire our best people on the basis of a personal recommendation. We know the power of word of mouth.

Today, when a rumour or chance remark can make its way round the world in seconds, you might think that social media would have enhanced that power. But does it really matter how many Twitter followers you have? Does your mastery of social media supply you with productive ideas or help you win contracts? In many cases, I suspect that a blur of activity masks an absence of any meaningful communication.

The real networking challenge is to meet the right people in the right context. Are you reaching decision-makers? Are you meeting the people who can help you make decisions? Are you in the right networking environment? And there’s one more vital question: are you equally ready to listen as to talk?
