Networking is not just about meeting people or sharing contact information with people you meet.
It is first about the quality of people you meet.
How you establish and nurture long term, mutually beneficial relationships with the people you meet.
When networks are established and nurtured properly, it yields long term rewards.
Networking is essentially helpful in job search because you could get a referral from your network that would greatly increase your chances of landing your dream job.
So take your time and develop and nurture healthy relationships.
There is a common saying that goes thus “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.”
It is, therefore, necessary to surround yourself with productive, achievement-driven individuals.
Select your network wisely. As an applicant, it is advisable to network with people who will mentor you in your desired career path.
