Attend networking happy hours

Attend a casual gathering for professionals, even if those professionals are the people from your office. Make sure you have plenty of updated business cards and meet some new people. It’s really important to talk to different people even if it’s not immediately apparent how you could be useful to one another. A lot of business connections come from friends of friends so be sure to case a wide net. And if the group are colleagues from the office, use this as a chance to catch up on what’s going on around the office. Having that kind of information will help you determine what your prospects are for advancement and change within the company.
