The Tardy Social Network

I am the recuiter for our company. I get invitations on LinkedIn all day from people currently seeking career opportunities.

Wanna know which ones I pay most attention to? The ones NOT currently looking. There. I said it.

Why on Earth don’t people understand this basic rule. Ready?
Build your network now. Befor you need it. Otherwise it feels needy amd dirty.

The goal of a network is to help EACH OTHER. Only working to build your network after you need it says, ” I need all of you to stop and focus on me. Who cares that I have done absolutely mothing to help YOU in the last X number of days, years or decades.”

Build a network and GIVE to it.  You have some expertise that people care about. Someday you will get to reap the benefits and receive.
