With a continuously growing yet competitive job market, networking has never been more important. In fact, a recent LinkedIn survey found that up to 85% of all jobs are filled via networking.
Networking is about building mutually beneficial relationships with others. It’s about helping people who may, in turn, help you and it’s a key part of any effective career management strategy. Networking is not about asking your contacts for jobs; however job opportunities, work experience or internships may come your way via your networks due to your successful networking efforts.
While it’s easy to get caught up in assignments, exams, club meetings, personal hobbies and commitments, it’s also important to be intentional about building your networks while you’re still at university.
