Is anyone truly passionate about networking? If so, I would love to hear about your experiences and learn all of your secrets. For most of us, especially those who are introverted, it takes a lot to get excited about networking. I’m usually overwhelmed by the idea of putting myself out there and networking with strangers, but I never regret the times I do attend networking events or get in touch with people I want to work with. I’ve even met some of my closest friends through networking! Next week, I’ll share my own networking tips with you based on my own experiences, but for now here is some excellent advice from some of our favorite bloggers!
1. A few months ago, Emma at A Beautiful Mess shared an insightful blog q&a on networking etiquette. She places a huge emphasis on the importance of being friendly, and I couldn’t agree with that more!
2. I know that many of us are introverts, which can make networking feel very daunting. This post on how to network as an introvert from Style Miss Molly is so encouraging. Definitely worth the read.
3. Life Goals Mag always has amazing advice! I love Tiffany’s list of 5 tips you can use today to grow your network.
