MORE IDEAS FROM 7 Counterintuitive Networking Hacks You Probably Aren't Using

Relationships take time, and by the time you do need something and could use their help, they’re more likely to respond if they know who you are.

Why networking?

Interacting with people with same interests but from different professions, nationalities, and cultures gives you a broader scope of life. Networking is an opportunity to practice starting conversations, communicating clearly and learning about people around you. These interactions will increase your confidence, and you will no longer feel anxious about starting a conversation with strangers.

Another undeniable benefit of networking is the impact on your business or career. Experts agree that success has a direct link to your networking skills. More connected individuals are more successful!

New research suggests that, for those who loathe happy-hour meetups and employee get-togethers, a change in attitude could be the ticket to a bigger network and more productive career.
