Studies show that over 80% of jobs are acquired by referrals. This is why networking is one of the most important skills a college student can learn.
In this video, I talk about my 5 rules of networking that every student should follow. These rules have allowed me to build long-lasting relationships with hundreds of individuals world wide. The 5 rules are:
#1 Always start with what’s in it for them
#2 Only receive something when you really need it
#3 Make sure you stay top of mind
#4 Position yourself as a trusted advisor
#5 Stay true to your word
I also go on to speak about how to network at a live event. I give multiple tips, but my favorite tip is to get there early and introduce yourself to the event organizer.
