Networking Matters

"Your network is always going to be your biggest asset. Many of my career moves were possible only because I had already established professional relationships. Engineers tend to hear 'network work' and misconstrue that as 'you need to go out and meet new people.' No, that's not the right idea: strong relationships can take months, even years, to cultivate. So strike up connections with interesting people and do the work to stay in touch."
