What is Networking? It is building relationships with people one at a time for the purpose of gaining information about “trends” in your chosen industry, and asking for contacts into those companies. Why? So that you can obtain an eventual interview for the dream job that usually is not advertised. We all have contacts – but how do we approach them and ask for assistance.
