Get this from a library! Networking skills that will get you the job you want. [Cherie Kerr]. Networking as part of our job search is certainly useful, but a haphazard, confused approach can render it counterproductive. This book helps untangle matters by laying out the steps for a straightforward, targeted approach. Pierson is also honest about the time and perseverance required to get the job we really want.   The book clearly lays out the most important aspects that you need to get right, while you plan and build your career. The book prescribes a clear road-map on how to get to work you : Bhupinder Nayyar. Good networking skills are not gaining new contacts on LinkedIn; networking is developing relationships over time that is mutually beneficial but may be able to aid you in a job hunt or business venture either initially or in the future. Prioritize efforts that develop strong long-term relationships with important connections.

The only two hard requirements are a willingness to stretch beyond your comfort zone and the intention to pay it forward by helping others when you can. Your skills will get you started, but the connections you make through networking can help ensure a long and thriving career in whatever profession you pursue.   Networking can be tricky. Here are a few ways to help you when you're ready to connect with other professionals, including potential investors, partners or clients.   You Get Your Name Out There. Networking helps you become relevant and trust-worthy. When you apply for a job by application, you need to work extra hard to create a memorable first impression and it is often much harder to get a foot in the door. If you have achieved your application through networking then you have already overcome that first. When you have been job hunting, you may depend on networking with people you know to help you get the type of position you want. However, by improving your networking skills, you can use untapped resources and be more proactive in your job search. Being proactive can help you reach your goal of a job more quickly.

Networking Skills That Create New Job Offers Networking is not one basic skill that you need to develop, it’s a mindset change that you need to apply to all the things you do. Networking is about creating and maintaining relationships with relevant people and helping them achieve their goals. Networking is possibly one of the most important skills for entrepreneurs and is one which you have the opportunity to practice on programmes such as Enterprise Tuesday. Networking involves building and maintaining contacts and relationships with other people. Hey, you need a job. But if you’re already established, networking isn’t about a job search. Instead, you want to be inspired and gather news you can use, either now or in the future. When you’re chatting with someone new, don’t feel the need to immediately counter everything he or she says with your own anecdote. Ask questions, delve deeper.   Among all of the networking skills you can develop, the two most important, by far, are listening and asking questions. These two skills will impress new contacts and potential clients even more than your best business statistics. Good listening validates the value of others and shows respect.
