Vibe Concepts, Inc. Looks at Tips for Networking
Networking is one of the most important skills in business. Forming relationships with other industry professionals is key to establishing a strong foundation for growing your career, and at Vibe Concepts, Inc., we go further to make sure every member of our team has the guidance and tools they need to make this an integral part of their success. Any meeting or encounter is an opportunity to develop your network, but it takes a subtle, skilled approach to get the most out of these exchanges. Be upfront in your networking, and don’t ever be shy to make a contact. In business, mutually beneficial relationships will always be interesting, and if you can demonstrate that you have something to offer, it becomes easier to strike up that all important rapport with your intended target. At the same time, make sure you don’t just wade in to a networking exchange looking for a favor. Networking works far more effectively when you can add some value to the table, so consider how you can help people first, before thinking about how they can help you grow your career. It is essential that you don’t leave network building to chance. Whenever you have made a new connection, it is worth following up with an email after the event to cement the relationship and seal the connection with the new contact. A simple message to say hello opens a channel of communication, and ensures that if you need to contact each other in the future, there is no further ice to be broken. Networking is a skill that can take years to master, yet its implications on your career can be significant. As such, we always aim to ensure our team members have the opportunity to network and build new relationships, with a view to strengthening their career prospects.
