How to Build Your Network
This week’s episode is one of our ‘How To’ episodes and we’re covering that sometimes awkward topic of networking.
One of our guests has described your network as your ‘net worth’ and while that may be an exaggeration, there’s no doubt who you know can really make a difference to opportunities that may come your way. Particularly if you’re in the position of wanting to change industries or jobs.
Of course, building your network during COVID can be a little bit trickier and we talk about this during the episode.
You’ll also hear tips and advice on:
- How to nurture and maintain your existing network
- What we (Claire and Greta) actually say and do when we’re ‘networking’
- How we approach it to take the awkwardness away
- And how to think about growing your network to help your career goals.
So if you’re contemplating a career change, or have neglected your network this year, then this is the episode for you! If you know someone who is looking for a job or to change careers, then why not share this with them now. Enjoy!
