Making Networking a Research Activity
Amp Up the One-on-One Communication
You may be tempted to tell contacts that you’re open to anything, but that approach can backfire. You want to be specific enough to have your friends and family be able to inventory who they know, while also letting them know you’re open to new ideas. And don’t assume that a person in one industry doesn’t know people in another industry. Keep an open mind about who might be able to help.
