What I am reading: Make Your Contacts Count (Networking Know-How For Business and Career Success) by Anne Baber and Lynne Waymon

Where in the book: page 19

 

Why I am reading: Learning how to network. Cause believe me, I have no CLUE!

 

Which quote: “Absolutely the worst time to begin networking is when you need to-after you decide to changed jobs or lose your job.”

 

How this quote adjusted my thinking:

I can see how this would be true. If people sense you are desperate they are wary that you are networking for one purpose. Once you reach your goal-obtaining a job-you will move on. Then people feel used. You got what you wanted and did not stay to help others. However, when you network before you need the job you get the opportunity to showcase your skills, invest in the group by helping others and you prove yourself.
