There are few things that confuse professionals more than networking.
Extroverts think networking is collecting business cards at happy hours.
Introverts think its about selling out to the extroverts who like to collect business cards.
Job seekers think its about sending out a million resumes to everyone theyve ever met asking people to give them a job.
That girl you knew back in high school thinks its about messaging people she hasnt seen in years to tell them theyd be just perfect for her team! in the MLM she just joined.
Those things might be networking, but they arent effective networking.
Effective networking is about exactly one thing: Relationships.
