There’s a common misconception that networking is only done in a professional context, like networking events or LinkedIn. However, your interactions with others can be viewed as networking — it's easier than you think!
Why is networking important?
Your connections with peers, colleagues, supervisors, family, and friends can be extremely valuable in your career growth. You can use your network to:
- Help you find hidden opportunities
- Meet more people in fields you may be interested in
- Help you learn about industries/company culture before you apply
