Good Monday morning,
What is the secret to getting a job in a tight economy? Well according to research from a number of leading sources, more than 70% of people get their new roles through their network. This week’s podcast is with the worlds leading expert on networking, Keith Ferrazzi. He wrote the New York Times best selling book on the subject Never Eat Alone. Networking has a lot of myths, people are too busy, it is crass or many suggest they are not very good at it. Keith shared “the heart of networking is building relationships; the heart of business is friendships.” I am assuming you have friends, therefore you know who to network with, and you know how to network. It is that easy!
This week, reach out and touch someone in your network. You will be surprised what opportunities could come out of your conversation.
