Many people underestimate the power of preparation in maximizing their networking efforts. From researching the right event to attend, to preparing for the conversations they hope to have once they’re there, to how to follow up in the most effective way.
They just make it up as they go with meager results to show for it. And then,
ironically, they complain that, “networking doesn’t work.”
Whether you’re networking in person or trying to make connections online, it’s not about just being in the room, or putting up your profile. It’s about the quality of the interactions you have, and even more specifically, the quality of your CONVERSATIONS.
