But do you really believe it? I’m one of those folks that talk to people every chance I get and many of you that know me can confirm this! But I have a passion for it! I remember at an employer that I once had, I was told by one person that I was not taking the job seriously because I was too happy and joyful – well, thereís a great note to leave on!
Sometime, I’ll have clients that say, “but Kevin, I donít have time to network”, well my response is that if over 80% of the jobs out there are gotten through networking, you donít have time not to be networking! Feel free to contact me (using the comments button below) and Iíd be happy talk more on your situation about this.
Depending on your situation, I have two great opportunities for you to network in the next week:
