2014 by Digital Curator Leave a Comment When most people think about networking seldom do they think of it as a means to recruit a new team member that is unless your business is growing rapidly and pursuing an aggressive round of hiring My company happens to be doing just that When evaluating opportunities to network I intentionally look for events that will help us meet our goals I consider three factors relevance reach and return on investment Are we relevant Before committing to a networking event there needs to be sufficient evidence that the event itself is somewhere we ought to be The event attendees need to be interested in working for a company like ours and doing the sort of work we need them to do For instance we ve recently been looking for sales and marketing employees With this in mind we choose to participate at events that draw students who have just graduated from college or university and are looking for their first full time job What kind of reach is there Knowing that we re a good fit for an event is one thing but in order to go we need to know we ll get in front of hundreds of hopefuls The last networking event we went to was attended by 600 students Then once we re there how do we stay front of mind for these potential employees Prior to the event we post social media updates to help spark interest in our company and we align ourselves with the event using the event s hashtag Letting local media know that we ll be there is another step we take to increase our visibility Lastly what will it take to see a good return on investment When networking with students the staff we invite to represent the company are relatable friendly and best of all can speak from personal experience having joined the company straight out of school themselves Part of our recruitment strategy is to share a one page report that provides candidates with an overview of our company and features testimonials from team members We describe the benefits of working with us and give instructions for how to apply online See Full Story on blogs wsj com Filed Under Networking Tagged With Business David Ciccarelli Employee Events Networking MASTER

networking experts would make the cuts Harvey Mackay CEO of MackayMitchell Envelope Company and author of several other bestselling business books including Swim with the Sharks without Being Eaten Alive Harvey Mackay has championed the importance of networking for decades If you took away all of his business success but left him with his network I ll be back to what I was today in three to five years he says He chooses his five by role 1 Best friend It might be your spouse or a trusted friend but you have to have a confidante and sounding board one person in the world to whom you can tell everything and anything Mackay says 2 Doctor Find a medical expert who can give you good counsel about your health and help you make well informed decisions if you or a family member gets sick 3 Legal expert Whether you need business or personal legal advice having a lawyer in your network helps you identify the type of legal counsel you need for any given situation Your attorney can be a sounding board for tricky situations to ensure you act in your own best interest 4 Mentor or coach Everyone has room to grow Mackay says Find the person who can teach you what you need to know to get better

4 Habits Your Contacts Hate 4 March 2014 by Digital Curator Leave a Comment Here are four common networking mistakes and strategies for making more meaningful connections moving forward 1 You re not really there You walk into a crowded room and immediately get caught in a conversation You shake hands but your eyes are wandering taking in the room and trying to find the person you really want to meet This is a horrible practice yet so many of us do it We concentrate so heavily on connecting with the right title that we begin to consider every midlevel conversation a missed opportunity for speaking with the people who really matter This attitude will undermine your success Remember the person across from you might not have a VP title or work for a large organization but he is connected to a universe of people You might need one of those connections someday or you might just have an amazing conversation and learn something To help manage your anxiety set a five minute limit on all conversations After that unless
