Leading a Networking Meeting

Coffeeshop-meeting-3x4


Make it happen!

In the past couple of weeks I’ve heard of a few people whose campaigns have stalled. The root cause of the problem is pretty easy to diagnose: they haven’t had a single networking meeting. My firm belief is that everyone has plenty of reasons to “network.”

Networking meetings are the heart and soul of a successful job search. If you are having problems with networking, if you don’t know what to talk about, if your campaign has stalled, then you can’t miss this week’s meeting. We’ll show you how. And we’ll make it easy (easier).

In fact, we see great examples of preparation for networking meetings all the time. One time, for instance, we helped a client identify a potential boss at a top-five target company. He exclaimed to me and the two other participants, “I played high school football with this guy’s brother, and I’m going to see the brother this Friday night!”

Keith found a great new job; we’ll show you how on Friday.

      Dave, this sounds like a lot of hot AIR to me.

      Dave,

      Just did my first “cold” call. When the gentlemen asked what I wanted told him

      Advice,
      Information, and
      Referrals.

      Now looking at a company that I had not considered before.

      Thanks,
      Michael
