Last May, I had the honor of speaking on a Jane Cranston conference call. Jane Cranston was a former VP in my BNI chapter. She is a well-respected Executive Coach. Every month, she calls on one of her many colleagues to give some words of wisdom and inspiration to her clients and listeners.
My call was entitled, “Are You Networking Or Not Working?” We discussed how to “work” a networking event, what to do after the meeting, how networking can help your job search/interviewing, as well as the pros and cons of social networking.
This segment deals with off/online networking. It’s good to be on LinkedIn and to make connections that way, but it’s better if you are meeting folks face to face and then staying connected via the use of social media. And the subject of business cards come up.
