Use NYSL Promotions’ Best Networking Tips
We train NYSL Promotions associates to connect with all types of professional allies, and we know how important it is to have a diverse network of helpful contacts. If you need some help building up your network and advancing your career in the process, we suggest putting the following tips to good use:
• Be Helpful: Offer assistance to every potential contact, whether it comes in the form of an introduction, a link to an interesting article, or a listening ear. When you go out of your way to help others, they remember the gestures and offer meaningful assistance in return.
• Join a Professional Group: This is a good way to make connections away from typical networking events, which we at NYSL Promotions know can be nerve-wracking experiences. When you have a strong group of allies you can meet with on a regular basis, you have a better chance of devising great ideas and helping each other in meaningful ways.
• Find Connectors: When you have connectors working on your behalf, your networking pursuits become much easier and more productive. Make sure to look for skilled connectors as you build your network. These influential people will help you efficiently add further contacts who can boost your career pursuits.
Our NYSL Promotions leaders hope you will apply these strategies to take your networking game to the next level.
