What Networking Really Is and How to Be Good at It (Infographic)
Kyla Nievera, Executive Chronicles | One of the buzzwords that have made rounds in the business landscape over the last few years is networking. While this concept predates digital platforms like social media and websites, networking has gained a lot of traction in recent years due to exciting benefits it can provide. However, the way people conduct it today is very different than how people do it decades ago.
Back in the day, networking actually involved conversing with real people, traveling from place to place to meet new individuals and build a professional network that can provide high-quality resources and even referrals to business. Nowadays, with a plethora of new platforms available, people can easily build their own professional network with a simple click on a desktop computer or call on a smartphone. It’s a lot easier and faster to network these days, which is why there is no reason for any professionals and business owners not to take advantage of this technique these days.
Whether it’ s about finding a potential business partner, new employees, or job opportunities, having an extensive network can help you achieve your goals much faster. However, this is only possible if you have a thorough understanding of how networking works. Fortunately, this infographic provided by Phil.
