Develop networks

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

There is no doubt that we prefer to work with people we like; as colleagues, suppliers, consultants, partners, clients. But if you don't meet people, make contacts and sustain relationships then your network will be less able to promote you.

I know this sounds like an old boy network. That's how I felt about it when I was a young professional, and as a female I obviously rebelled against it. But in reality it's just having work related friends. I have over 250 people I send Christmas cards to, people who i appreciate as friends and/or colleagues. And these people often bring work and job leads my way.

So here's a top tip; make sure you use the networks you have to your advantage, by keeping up with them.

Task:
Email one person in your network every day
Today email them this blog post, then comment and let us know what response you got.
