Effective Networking: Some of the Rules Have Changed

I'm a firm believer that Networking is one of the most vital aspects to searching for a job. I also believe that it needs to extend beyond the job search and into one's live in general. Even after obtaining a new job, I still recognize the value of keeping in touch with old business contacts. You never know when something you know or have may be beneficial to someone else, and vice versa.

Still, effective networking is different today than it was some years ago. The old techniques no longer work. In his article "Handy Hints for the Smart Job-Seeker" for Businessweek Online, Michael Laskoff discusses these differences with some tips for effective networking. Read it, put it into practice, live it, and share it. And be sure to keep in touch with me: danimal0416 at yahoo dot com.
