My Thoughts on Networking
"Networking" is an overused word that means "talking to people." Networking is probably how you will get your next job, and once you're there, your networking will help you make business connections that will help you succeed. At its simplest, it means casually keeping in touch with old friends as your careers mature. At the other extreme, "networking" can be an active, highly focused, goal-oriented process designed to get you the job you want. Both casual and active networking are important, and they work together.
