Grow Your Career Networking Seeds Organically
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Aug, 2010
I admit, I’ve never really embraced the word, “networking,” or the idea of it. Instead, I love the concept of NetWeaving. Over at the NetWeavers International website, they promote a pay-it-forward approach and publish a creed that talks about a “shift from thinking about WIIFM (What’s in it for Me) to WIIFY (What’s in it for YOU).” As well, they discuss strategies in learning how to be a resource for others to provide informa...
Are You Headed Toward or Away?
by Christine Hassler - Aug, 2010
Our motivation is directional, impacting the results we create and the ease in which we create them. Think about when you are motivated to do something.

A Tale of Two Networkers
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2010
Networking. The mere mention of the word strikes terror in the hearts of even the most seasoned professionals. For some reason, the thought of connecting with fellow human beings has become more like something we have to do, instead of something that happens naturally. What used to be pleasant conversation and sharing morphed into to-do list entries and deadlines. We set specific dates and list relevant topics for planned cont...

by Kevin Donlin - Jul, 2010

Recruiters and The Job Hunt
by Randy Wooden - Jul, 2010

I’m often told, “I’ll hold off on contracting with you because I want to have a recruiter place me for free.” The reality i...

How to network when you hate to network
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jul, 2010
We all hear about how important networking is for our careers, but many of us simply don’t do it. In fact, some of us hate the practice, and would rather eat an entire copy of my book, Work 101: Learning the Ropes of the Workplace without Hanging Yourself, (sorry, shameless plug) than network, even if it meant we’d wind up in better jobs with better opportunities as a result. Does this make any sense to you? It’s time to gr...

So you’re more selective about who you give your information to.
