Keeping Your Network Charged
It happens to us all work, family, just life. The next time we look up we haven't spoken to a past colleague in five years, haven't gone to a professional networking event in ten years or even went to a work event that was not mandated by our boss. Or maybe we have taken time off from work or have moved to a new city.
For some people, they wonder why do I need to network? I have been in the same job since 1990, and I plan on retiring with them.
That is nice, but today the average lifespan in a job is 4.6 years. Applying to a job is like throwing your resume into the wind. Having a person send your resume to the hiring manager or meeting people from the company you want to work with and creating a relationship is the best way to reenter or make a move in today's crowded job market.
Keeping your network charged we will discuss the importance of having a network, debunk the myths about networking, discuss how to grow and keep your network charged for life.
