Networking is about building bridges, not asking for favors. It’s about connecting with people who share your interests and goals, and learning from each other.
When you network, don’t focus on what you can get out of the relationship. Instead, focus on what you can give. Be helpful and supportive, and offer to share your knowledge and expertise.
The more relationships you build, the stronger your network will become. And the stronger your network, the more opportunities will come your way.
So don’t be afraid to reach out to people and introduce yourself. You never know where it might lead.
