Pitfalls of the rookie networking hustler

  • Don't overpromote your resume. Focus on building relationships with your professional connections that go beyond what they can do for you. If they ask for your resume, give them a copy, but don't force it on them.
  • Don't assume people know why you're reaching out. Be clear about why you want to connect and let them know if you can help them.
  • Don't attend networking events to collect business cards. First have short conversations to see what you have in common.
  • Don't neglect to follow up. Hustlers are proactive to follow through.

Hustlers network with those they know

Networking means looking after your current relationships with your family, friends and co-workers.

The best hustlers know how to get what they want from exiting relationships. They ask people about themselves first, then ask for the information they require. Win their hearts first, then ask them for help.

Your current network can help you with:

  • A professional reference on a job application.
  • A letter of recommendation.
  • A referral for a job.
  • Asking your peers who know a new industry standard or technology for help.

Hustlers network in person

In-person networking helps to create an emotional connection. Hustlers who learn how to network in person learn the art of selling themselves to strangers.

  • The workplace should be the first place you build your professional network. Schedule networking lunch dates, coffee chats, and office conversations.
  • Professional events. You can meet remarkable people at professional workshops, conferences and job fairs.
  • Personal/social events. These events are more relaxed and can help you to be more transparent about your career needs.
  • Educational institutions. Connect with deans and professors.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
