What is a network?

Your network can help you gain employment, get experience or new clients.

  • What do your skills say about the type of work that fits?
  • Are there any values or personality traits that would be better suited for this position than others?
  • How does this role fit into your life as a whole?

A community can be found online or in person.

  • I’ve noticed you did ‘x’. Can we meet for a coffee to discuss how you did this?
  • I saw your speech on ‘x’. Your point on ‘x’ really stuck in my mind; could you tell me more about this?
  • I really enjoyed our conversation about ‘x’ the other day. I would love to talk more over a coffee; I’m keen to pick your brain more on ‘x’
  • Can I join the conversation? (This is my go-to at networking events, especially when I want to speak to someone who is constantly engaged in other conversations during events)

Connections should be mutually beneficial.

People need connections to thrive, yet many have difficulty connecting in a meaningful way. You can build your network by thinking about the 5 C’s: content, career, community, connections and being consistent.

How can you keep in touch?
