5 Ways To Become a Better Networker This Year
Every time I meet or talk with someone, I try to make sure they remember who I am. This means you have to have a clear sense of who you are and what some of your goals (short-term or long-term) are. If people can remember things about you that make you special or that you’re interested in, they’ll more likely to call you up if they know of an opportunity that might be a fit for you. For example, I recently received a call from Sakita Holley, a PR Professional and fellow MN Biz writer I spoke with in May 2013, who heard of a strategy opportunity that she thought I’d be interested in. Her words to me were, “You were the first person I thought of.” Make sure people have a reason to remember you. That also means you have to follow up with them from time-to-time to stay on their radar.
