Networking is unavoidable in modern society. There is often some confusion over the definition of networking, which is why many people do not network effectively. Some people assume that networking is simply meeting new people and collecting their contact information. Others equate networking with socializing. The problem with both definitions is that neither results in true business connections. In true networking, developing contacts and relationships results in new knowledge and greater influence. By understanding what networking truly is, you will be able to focus your energy appropriately and develop beneficial relationships.
