Good episode? Give it some love!
Sure, you’ve heard the advice: ‘you have to network’. And yes, you’ve heard ‘who you know is more important than what you know’ when it comes to career opportunities. But still, it seems you don’t know how to make your professional relationships help you advance. Does effective networking seem mysterious, elusive, or just not relevant? 
If you’d like to learn how to develop the right professional network - the kind that does help you get ahead - this episode is for you. 
In this episode of The Career Rx we’ll discuss:
  • Where to find contacts in the industry when you don’t know where to start
  • Where to find the folks whose actual job is to help you (they want to connect with you)!
  • Leveraging new organizations to learn, and to get the right visibility for your next move
I always hear people say they don’t know how to network outside of their current industry. But it’s really pretty easy! I’m going to share three very simple and highly effective ways to connect with people who are doing the kind of work that you aspire to do, and who will be interested in knowing and helping you. 
By the end of this episode, you’ll know exactly how to get started networking in an entirely new way.
