5 Ways To Become a Better Networker This Year

March 3, 2014  |  

ASK FOR INFORMATIONAL INTERVIEWS
I briefly met Paula Renfroe, the editor in chief of Juicy magazine at an event she hosted this summer.  A few months later, I reached out to her via email requesting an “informational interview.” She kindly agreed and we met up one evening after work to discuss her career journey. The meeting was fabulous and she even connected me to another industry professional she thought it would be good for me to talk to. Sometimes, simply reaching out to people you find inspiring and asking to take them to coffee to “pick their brain” is a good strategy for networking. Be genuine and show interest, and you’ll be surprised how many people say “yes.”
