How Much Should We Network?

It's not what you know, but who you know!

How many times do you actually hear that saying? A lot, especially if you are in the market for a new position within your company or just a new job or career. So you ask yourself the question, "how much should I be networking?"

According to, “At least 60% - some report even higher statistics - of all jobs are found by networking.” But then we ask ourselves how do we network? Here are a couple of tips you can use to start creating that network:
•Develop contacts with family, friends, Co-workers, everyone that you know.
•Join networking sites online
•Go to local networking events
Attending events and joining networking sites are just a couple of options you can use to get started, however, there are so much more you can do. We just need to ask ourselves how much should we be doing to add to our network.
