10 career resolutions for the new year
Make a concentrated effort to network
Like sales, networking comes easily to some people and is excruciating for others. The good news is that online social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook have become a common ground for keeping in touch and re-connecting with past colleagues, friends and family. If you are introverted and its easier to network online, use these tools to your advantage.
For those who prefer face-to-face interactions, set up networking meetings or informational interviews to learn more about a certain organization, technology, or different industries and functions. Just make sure, no matter the networking road you take, always remember its a two way street give your associates something of value in return for their time and goodwill.
