Networking Strategies

Tips to help you effectively use your professional network for career success.

Social Networking

  • Be active on professional networking sites
  • Post a career-appropriate photo
  • Manage your profile and keep it up to date
  • Connect with current and former colleagues
  • Follow people and companies that interest you
  • Ask for introductions from mutual connections
  • Build and protect your personal brand

Opportunities begin by making connections. Introduce yourself to someone in a role that interests you. You never know where that connection could lead."

In-Person Networking

  • When meeting someone for the first time, be sure to repeat their name in conversation to help yourself remember
  • Always have one hand free so you have the opportunity to shake hands
  • Smile and make eye contact
  • Don't dominate the conversation
  • Don't be afraid to leave conversations to speak with other individuals

Be yourself and be confident. It's what makes you unique.

Cara, Campus Recruiting Manager

Successful networking comes down to not being afraid to make initial contact with someone. Be sure to follow-up on leads and send a “thank you” message to new contacts (and the colleague who referred you).

Most important of all? Never stop networking!
