In the past month I have had the great luck of attending two marketing related events, both were organized by the American Marketing Association, Boston Chapter. I will dive deeper into each event in the next two blog posts but before doing that, I wanted to touch on the importance of networking. I’ve said it time and time again that you shouldn’t only network when you are looking for work. You should make it a part of your everyday life. You can network with new employees, you can network on LinkedIn within your expanded network and your various groups.
The point is, the more people you can chat with and meet the more value you can bring to not only every day conversation but also to your job. You are given the opportunity to learn, interact and share and compare your knowledge about a certain topic. What’s not to like about reaching out and…meeting someone new?
Get out there, attend an event, learn and network!
