Networking for Career Success: 24 Lessons for Getting to Know the Right People (The McGraw-Hill Professional Education Series)
Networking for Career Success shows professionals how to enhance their careers through effective networking. It covers everything from basics of networking to targeted techniques for making a career change, funding a new business venture, adding clients, and more.
Network? What’s that about and why should I care?
If that’s what you’re wondering, this is the book for you. In 24 short lessons, you’ll learn the basics of networking.
This book focuses on two facets of networking: the outside – the practical, the skills – and inside – the spiritual, the connection that we feel with others when we network.
This book will establish that networking is the art of building and sustaining mutually beneficial relationships. It’s about helping and being helped, about having expectation of others and meeting their expectation of you.
It shows how networking is building relationships before you need them, so when you need help, you know people to contact who will be willing and able to help you. It’s not about selling anything, getting a job, receiving a donation, or securing funding.
