Building a Network

Great post by Miriam Salpeter for US News & World Report about building one’s network. I like the step-by-step guide – although it is important to know that each person will have a slightly different path to building his/her network.  Still these steps detail a solid approach for those who are looking for a “How-To” guide.

I especially liked her approach of beginning with target employers, then finding possible contacts.  Both directions work, but the employer-contact approach is often overlooked.  Finally, her last comment about staying in touch cannot be stressed enough, if someone will give you their time for a phone call or meeting, they will not mind a periodic update from you.
