You know that networking is critical in the professional arena – but did you know that 80 percent of all jobs are obtained through networking?

Yes, the word “networking” does have a tendency to raise anxiety levels, but let’s put it in perspective. Networking is something you can control. Networking is something you can do anywhere, with anyone. Networking is like a muscle: The more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes. The beauty of this is that once you master networking, you’ll see how many opportunities you can actively create for yourself. This should be exciting news that empowers you to take this strategy by the horns and own it.
