Notes on networking

Jotted these down after watching (Coffee Club) Episode 7: Take your Tech Career to the Next Level with Networking.

  • Networking is every interaction you have
  • Focus on relationships first
  • Begin with a simple question, a small ask or inquisition
  • Making little deposits all the time add up to something bigger
  • More about giving than taking
  • A personal newsletter is a form of networking
  • Who knows that “you know what you know”?
  • Build relationships and skillsets before you need them
  • Ask exactly the question you need the answer to, and let them decide how to answer
  • Reach people on the platforms they like to use
  • Follow up with advice givers after you’ve tried the advice
  • Following up means you are now building a relationship
  • Person first, resource second
