Career Corner: Career Advice for College Grads – How to Network With Family and Friends Tip #3

Tip #3 – Be persistent in searching for names.

Brainstorm everyone you know. Keep your eyes and ears open for potential career networking opportunities… on email, at the next family gathering, or social event you attend and so on. If one idea doesn't pan out well or someone doesn't respond, don't take it personally. Sometimes people get caught up in the stress of everyday life, and they simply forget to get back to you. If that happens, follow up at least once to be sure you don't miss a good opportunity. If someone isn't open to talking with you, they're probably not a good fit for you anyway. Let it go and move on. Maintain a positive attitude above all! Whatever you do, know that it will happen for you at the right place and time. So don't stagnate – move on and keep going.
