Expand Your Reach in the Workplace
Progressing your career in the workplace relies on your hard work and initiative, but also relies on other people seeing the opportunity in us and for us. Consider this: the more people you know, the more doors will open for you. You want to work for an organisation, a team, a project? That organisation is made up of individuals, and these people have the potential to be helpful partners in your progress.
So where do you find work related connections and which connections are the right ones?
With so many opportunities to build relationships both in person and online, it is important to make your time count.
Learn how to put together a great networking strategy and get tips on executing this strategy.
