Networking In the Right Way

Posted on September 5, 2022September 13, 2022Categories Career Advice

Most networking encounters result in dead-end leads mostly because people’s perception of how to network is wrong. Business people will trade business cards, information, and have short conversations with strangers who very possibly have no intent on connecting in the future. How many of these short interactions actually end with one party contacting the other? Here we will look at 3 game-changing tips practiced by networking experts.


It’s a myth: “If you want to succeed, you must have a large network of connections.” It’s not the size of the connection that counts; it’s the influence of the people you know and your relationship with them that makes the difference. Having large networks will do nothing for you if your contacts have no interest in you or your business. Here is an example: How many friends do you have on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn? Maybe you have several hundred or even a thousand. How many of these people contact with you monthly or even yearly? Honestly speaking, only your close friends/family will be connecting with you regularly. It’s the same with networking… only more extreme. If your number of connections is large, but the people in your groups are all strangers, the chances of doing services with them is very small… a short time after your encounter, they probably won’t even remember your name.

How do the best networkers form relationships with other well-connected people? You need to purposefully target the people you wish to connect with. Here is a plan. Write a list of 20 to 30 influential people in your marketplace. People you may wish to connect with could include: business leaders you have done business with in the past, people who have strong potential to introduce you to large numbers of buyers, or high-quality prospective clients. Then, strive to get earn their attention. If you could build up a short list of well-connected people (even 5 to 10 people) and if you could have these people a phone call away, opportunities for your business could be vastly improved. Instead of spending your time attending events to connect with strangers who only want to sell their products, begin targeting those people who can really help you.


Many professional networkers avoid wasting all their time attempting to connect with strangers. Your friends and family have your interests in mind. They also know more about you, your character, and your business than most people; their ability to pass on a good word and create opportunities for you is much greater than the chances of connecting with a stranger. From my personal experiences, I can’t think of even one door that was opened or opportunity that was created from networking with a stranger. Every business and career opportunity that I’ve experienced has been the result of networking with family and friends and connections they can introduce. Thus, start with your family and friends and see where this leads you.


In the initial contact, many business people are too pushy to get what they want and they create awkward situations. As a result, they damage their chances for future communications. Be patient. Take your time in developing a relationship with your connections. If your connections see you as a “salesman type of person”, they are likely to avoid you. If the opportunity doesn’t present itself in the first connection, don’t push it. After some time of communicating, you can connect with them with a purpose in mind.

Networking is indeed a vital part of business and an important tool, however, if used in the wrong way, this tool can be ineffective. Business people waste a lot of time and valuable potential customers because they don’t know how to use this tool.

Niche Networking

Posted on September 2, 2022September 13, 2022Categories Career AdviceTags , ,

Some of the most successful business people, entrepreneurs, entertainers etc. find their success in niche markets. A niche is clearly defined as an area of the market specializing in one product or service. Another useful definition is a position or activity that particularly suits somebody’s talents and personality or that somebody can make his or her own. This concept can go perfectly for networking, as well. As savvy networkers, you too can establish a niche for reaching your goals and agendas.

Listed below are tips and strategies for zeroing in on your specific target.

Event Planning
A great way to create a niche for yourself in networking is picking specific events to attend. Only pick events which fall in line with your networking objectives. Narrow your selection to events in a specific part of town, or during a specific day of the week or hosted by a particular organization. Make sure that the event fulfills your goals and allows you to make the proper and most effective connections.

Plus One Guest
You can be selective in the people you invite and associate with for business and social matters. There is nothing wrong in having a guest or go to person who understands your objectives and is able to help you advance. Most likely they can provide support, advice and even constructive criticism to enhance your networking journey.

Business Partners
Similar to event guests, perhaps you can consider scouting a certain type of business partner for your endeavors. Being specific also involves selecting partners who have similar core values, compliment and not conflict with your product or service offerings. They may also provide opportunities for cross marketing and promoting.

Hopefully, these suggestions can provide insight on creating a lucrative and productive network. Take the time to properly select these aspects of your business or social objectives which can lead to tremendous success.

How to Prepare for a Video Interview

Posted on August 28, 2022September 13, 2022Categories Career Advice

Don’t get stressed out when doing a video interview.
Many companies are being more cost conscious and our culture’s growing reliance and utilization of technology, it is no surprise that more and more companies are requesting Video Conference Interviews with candidates.

Video conference interviews are a great way for Hiring Managers to “size up” a potential employee by allowing the Hiring Manager to evaluate the candidate’s communication and presentation skills.

So the question to answer: Are you prepared for a Video Conference Interview? How is it the same or different from Phone or Face-to-Face interviews? Here are a few important clinical trial staffing tips to keep in mind while preparing for your Video Conference Interview.

Rehearse just as you would before a Face-to-Face interview. Prepare yourself for the questions you’re most likely to be asked and be ready to explain the responsibilities you’ve had in your previous positions. Conduct a mock Video interview with a friend, having them ask you some generic and typical interview questions. Something you may find very helpful is to record your practice interview session so you can analyze your answers and facial expressions later.

Make sure your work space is ready for the Video interview. The space where you will have your interview should be free from clutter and things which will distract your interviewer or divert attention from you. Put your dogs and/or cats into another room, put the baby to sleep, unplug the phone, and put a sign up on your office door so your loved ones are clear they should not make noise while you are on your Video Conference.

Test your connectivity and hardware at least one hour prior to the interview. Ensure that your internet connection is strong and free from interruptions and verify that your camera and microphone are working. Be mindful of your microphone and its position during the interview. Microphones naturally amplify sound, and rustling papers or speaking to closely can make it hard for the interviewer to understand what you’re saying. Check the angle of your camera, making sure that there is a tight view on your head, shoulders, and chest. Monitor the lighting in the area you’ll be doing the interview, as plenty of light will improve the quality of the video being transmitted to your interviewer.

Speak slowly and clearly; as advanced as technology is becoming, there is often a slight lag or delay in the connection, and enunciating your words and speaking slowly will ensure that the interviewer understands what you are saying.

Dress as if you are going to a Face-to-Face interview. Just because you aren’t going to the office doesn’t mean you can wear your pajamas. Your interviewer will take notice of your attire whether you’re physically in front of them or on their computer screen.

A video conference interview shouldn’t be any more intimidating than a Face-to-Face interview, and following these clinical trial staffing tips will help you prepare and present the your best to the interviewer.
