Why should you support Networking
When looking for a new job, you collect information on postgraduate studies of new co-worker who interest you. Very often you are looking for information among those surrounding you. In most cases, you will get a lot of them, sometimes even more than you might think.
It best describes the idea of networking, which is nothing other than creating contacts using sustained relationships, resulting in giving each other both aid and support. As Jeffrey Gitomer said: “No man is an atom and it needs the environment at every stage their lives both in personal and professional life.”
Thus, networking relies heavily on the use of everyday experiences in creating relationships with people around us and those with whom we contact every day.
According to Gitomer, networking is mainly characterized by:
- Long-term span (the longer acquaintance, the more solid basis for contact)
- Systematic (maintaining knowledge is more than its making)
- Trust (you don’t advise and help a person if you do not trust),
- Reciprocity (the most important way to get, is giving)
- Process (network is being created all the time, is not something permanent, unchanging-hence continually requires action).
- recommending services
- sharing of knowledge and assistance, very helpful in business area
- building long-term relationships based on mutual benefits.
