Network in Northern Colorado: Jan. 30 - Feb 4

When we are job searching we need the help of others, and we can still add value.

Why networking?: Networking is no longer only for the unemployed. The reality of today’s economy is one of volatility where “stability” for professionals means having an up-to-date skill set and a strong network to help you land quickly when the next transition happens.

This week’s networking tip: If you’ve read anything on networking you’ve probably heard the cliché "give to get." This can be a challenge during the job search when we feel like we are in the position of asking for help. Finding little ways to add value to our network can be simple – just take a few hints from the pros, small business owners. What do your real estate agent, insurance agent, accountant, and other service providers have in common? They find ways to stay in touch while adding value – be it through a local market report, a birthday card, or tax law updates. When you are networking, ask questions and listen for ways you can add value. If you want to throw someone, ask how you can help them!
