Don't Stop Networking Now That You're Hired.
Step one: Look for ways to expand your network.
Judith Gerberg, Director of Gerberg & Co Career Counseling, recommends looking beyond your company for business contacts so that your networking will have lifelong continuity regardless of the specific jobs you hold. She suggests joining professional organizations that you have a genuine interest in and attending at least one activity a month. At the same time, habitually ask people in your circle if they know anyone who might be a good contact for you. At its core, networking should be fun. If you seek out people who care about the same things you do, you'll enjoy networking and won't view it as a chore.
