JOB SEARCH TIP #42: You have your new job– don’t stop networking.

25 Jul

Congratulations, you got the job! Do everything you can to become an awesome employee.

One mistake I see made frequently is folks get a new job and then stop networking. A new workplace is actually a terrific opportunity to continue developing your network. Beyond your new employer, you can make contacts with:

~ current and prospective customers,

~ supply chain partners (vendors),

~ professional associations/trade groups,

~ neighboring employers,

~ regulatory agencies, or

The rules of networking still apply—as you get to know a contact you can gain insights from them, AND you can also add value to them.

I know you may feel that networking helped you get a job, but networking could be even more important in helping you be successful in your new role while, at the same time, offering value to those with whom you come in contact.

Shall we take the mindset that your networking efforts should increase after you have your job? Yep, go with that.
