Networking Tip: Ask Your Current Contacts – I am certainly an advocate casting a wide net when networking. And, one of the best ways to do that is to attend a variety of groups’ events. But, don’t overlook the fantastic resources at your fingertips. If you are clear with your current connections about the characteristics of the new connections you would like to meet and you askthem to introduce you to people they know with those characteristics, you should get very good results. You will probably find fewer unexpected surprises this way, so combine this method with attending a variety of groups’ events.
