When was the last time you really thought about developing your network? Do you have a networking strategy? Having a healthy, growing network will not only improve your chances of finding your next job but can have a major impact on your ability to secure positions with greater responsibility and better pay. As you climb the corporate ladder, trust becomes increasingly important. As a manager, director or VP, you may be in charge of millions of dollars and the executive team is not going to bestow that kind of responsibility on just anyone. So having an insider who knows you, can attest to your character, and help communicate your value is a major advantage. Don’t forget, when you see successful people, you may often think they seem to know everyone in town. The fact is, they are probably successful BECAUSE they know everyone in town.
