Networking can be defined as a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having a common interest. In this case, successful networking means being referred to two or more people through a business or social connection. In our view, the best networkers always give back—it’s a two-way process that we like to call “net-weaving”. And it’s not just about finding a new job—being employed doesn’t mean you should forget about networking. A personal network is an invaluable survival tool made up of relationships that should be strengthened and developed on a regular basis. A strong personal network can make the difference between success and failure in your professional and personal life.
