If your 2019 resolutions have anything to do with your career, we’ve got a resolution add-on for you to consider. In the latest blog from our community of apartments in Louisville, KY, we’ll be sharing a list of some of the best networking tips that we could come up with. Networking is one of the best ways to advance in your career, as it will allow you to find new opportunities that you wouldn’t know about otherwise.
Some people make new year’s resolutions to take the next step in their career. If you fall in that category, you might want to consider expanding your professional network. Whether it’s by talking to peers, trying to find a mentor or joining a group of professionals in your industry, expanding your network is always the right move.
Without further delay, let’s get right to the list of tips! When you finish reading through the blog post below, please feel free to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of Louisville apartments!
Harness the power of LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is good for more than just adding your college classmates. If you know the job you want or the company you’d like to work for, try reaching out to someone who has that job or works for that company. We’re not telling you to ask for an interview or anything, but it’s never a bad idea to reach out and see if someone is willing to grab coffee or participate in an informational interview.
Commit to one day a week
As with anything else, it’s hard to be successful with your networking if you’re not willing to commit. Pick one day of the week and tell yourself that you’ll use that day to network. It could be by grabbing coffee with a professional connection, going to a local industry meetup or simply browsing LinkedIn to find potential connections. The more you can commit, the more successful you’ll be.
Aim for authenticity
When meeting a potential networking connection or participating in a networking event, your goal should be to come across as authentic and original. The last thing you want to do is to sound like you’ve been rehearsing an elevator speech. You’re going to meet a lot of new people, and you should try your best to tell them all something different about yourself.
