Networking for your professional growth

In recent years, I have experienced how powerful networking can be for professional growth. “It’s not just what you know, but who you know,” right?

At networking events, I have met nice people over a simple coffee break. But also online, especially here on LinkedIn, I have made connections beyond just clicking “connect.

A few things I learned:

  • Real, authentic conversations are golden.

  • Quality over quantity. It’s not about the number of connections, but the depth of them.

  • Networking is a two-way street. It’s not just about what you can get, but what you can give.

And the most important one of all? Always follow up after a meeting. A simple thank you or sharing a relevant article can be the beginning of a valuable professional relationship.

Do you have any tips or experiences you’d like to share about networking? I love reading them!
