How to connect with people online

  • Compliment people's work. Without being transactional, tell people when you admire their work.
  • Don't compliment people's appearance. Instead, compliment them on the things they do and create.
  • Respond to questions. Most people post questions because they want to start a conversation.
  • Don't insert yourself into conversations between people you don't know. First, get to know at least one person.
  • Be funny. If you find an opportunity to be funny, use it.
  • Bring up information people will like.
  • Don't argue with people you barely know.

Networking with people on the right terms

Connecting with people improves our lives. But only connecting with them because we want something from them feels cringey.

People are more important than a career. If you don't know how to network, don't just make connections. Make friends.

Connect with people. Go to meetups and spend time with people online. Do this without the expectation of getting something in return. Do it because talking to people is great.

Then, when you need something, ask. Friends like to connect friends looking for a job with friends trying to hire.

How to Set Up a Networking Call
  • Start small. Connect with your peers, teachers, family, and friends to start off.
  • Think outside the box. Try cold-emailing, especially if you're searching for a job. It will be jarring at first due to a large amount of rejections or no replies, but as a result, it will become easier to present yourself via email or at in-person events.
  • Make the first move. You miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take, so take them.

Listen to people

Most people are not listening, but rather trying to be the loudest person in the room. 

If you ask questions and listen, you are extremely likely to stand out from the crowd.
