Do you replace phone calls or in-person networking opportunities with emails and social media? While social media has impacted many aspects of our daily lives, it simply can’t compare to the interaction and ability to connect that comes from actually spending time with people.
If you are looking to get a promotion or a new job, don’t rely on your online resume to make you a good candidate. Networking allows you to stand out from the crowd, really connect with others, and develop stronger relationships. The personal connection you form with your boss, or potential boss, could mean all the difference when he or she chooses the winning candidate.
