From the archives: April 1, 2003 – Networking – what’s it all about…

I’ve decided to take a look back at some of the content I’d published previously. This random, ongoing ‘feature’ titled From the archives will let me review older posts, and maybe add new insight that only the distance of time can provide.

Today’s inaugural item is particularly timely as we head into a recession with its accompanying employment dearth. What’s interesting about this post is it’s also one of the few times that I delved into audio…this post was a trial at podcasting 🙂

Networking the key concept for the Not-working. Get out, and find out who can help you out. People like to help, just don’t put your network members on the spot by asking them for a job, they’ll be uncomfortable and it’s quite likely that they don’t have one.

Instead, let them help you out. You work your network to get contacts in the industry you want to work in. Your network is large made up of family members, friends, co-workers, clients, neighbours everyone you know and they want to help.

At the time I was also looking to take my blogging to the next level, create content that added more value than simply repeating what others were saying online.

That thinking has helped me since then.

So, what do you think? Would you like to see more from the ‘archives’? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
