  • Elaine Wherry: Networking Tips for Wallflowers
    together scripts to log Meebo s usage stats I needed to hire someone to do a better job but at that time it wasn t a traditional position My first job description for an Information Scientist was so far off that I ended up with a handful of resumes for librarians Subsequent tweaks attracted banking analysts and mathematicians I needed to understand other organization s data teams but my professional network was embarrassingly thin That was my wake up call Networking isn t about drinking self promotion and agendas It s about a collection of weak connections to draw upon when you hit a professional wall As a leader it s inevitable that you ll no longer be the expert or have the time to learn on the fly Your network becomes your primary source for talent partnerships mentorship for yourself and your team references and backchannel news At some point networking becomes an essential part of your job As a wallflower by nature this wasn t an easy lesson I was an outsider decoding the unintuitive rules of networking Here s what I found surprising and helpful 1 Just because you re an introvert doesn t mean you can t network Introverts have networking advantages too We ask great questions we re fantastic listeners and we like making insights that others find valuable Even though your last Myers Briggs type or Buzzfeed quiz says you do your best work alone you can still have great networking skills 2 Connections gain value with time If you had coffee with two people one from five years ago and the other just a year ago the connection that you made five years ago will be perceived as stronger I can t believe we ve known each other for five years now Wow
