There’s an old adage, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”

That adage couldn’t be more appropriate in today’s competitive job market. And networking (especially when you’re employed) can be the key to staying employed and staying on a clear career track.

But there’s more to networking than shaking hands and exchanging business cards. Done right, networking helps you forge relationships with like-minded professionals to the benefit all.

The key is to get out there and connect. It’s up to you to find and make the most of the opportunities presented.
