Updated: May 2

Whether you're working a job you love or looking for your next fulfilling opportunity, it's always beneficial to strengthen your network. Here are ways to help you nurture and grow your professional connections.


3 Steps to Nurture Your Network


Identify Your Advocates: Advocates are people who know you, are familiar with your work, and appreciate both. You can use LinkedIn as your primary resource to make a list of your advocates, including their title and current company. Once you have your list, rank your advocates in order of importance.

Make Contact: Reach out to your advocates on a Friday to schedule a virtual coffee, lunch, or brief chat. If you haven't connected recently, send a short message asking how they're doing.

Next Step: Make connecting a weekly event and expand your efforts to other online communities. 


3 Steps to Grow Your Network


Join a Professional Organization: Look for an alumni or professional organization with a significant chapter presence in your area. This is a great way to grow your network and connect with people in person.

Join a Club: Pursue your interests and passions by joining a group or club. If you don't have anything specific in mind, join an organization that focuses on giving back.

Next Step: Recognize the value of social gatherings and commit to saying "yes" when invited.
