Throughout your life, you will find yourself in situations where professional networking will help you get to where you want to go. Whatever your strengths or weaknesses are, you can always improve your networking skills, and Professional Networking For Dummies can show you how.

Professional Networking For Dummies explores the essential techniques of networking to get you meeting and greeting in no time. It will help you get into the networking mindset and avoid such self-defeating traps as expecting immediate returns or turning off new potential colleagues. You’ll also discover how to overcome inhibitions, make small talk, and meet new contacts. Plus, you ’ll find special information on networking tools and technology, such as networking clubs, using voice and e-mail, Internet networking, and more.

Through these pages you’ll find out how to:

  • Maximize your relationships
  • Expand your circle of influence through networking events
  • Network in the corporate world, your community, and in your personal life
  • Develop lifelong career-building habits
  • Build and maintain your network
Networking is a universal principle of giving and receiving—a lifestyle rather than a technique. Professional Networking for Dummies can help you build lasting, powerful relationships, both in and out of the office. From using business cards properly to networking your way into a new job, this friendly guide is your tick to personal and professional success.
