10 Tips for a great networking experience

Victoria MacLennan

Reality is contacts and connections are still very important when building a career and personal brand. It would be fabulous if we were only judged on the quality of our work but as an employer faced with hundreds of CV's to sift through / shortlist from, occasionally those word of mouth recommendations will cut through the piles of paper quite quickly. Equally knowing who is hiring, who to avoid working for and who pays well for instance is often shared quite informally at ... you guessed it, networking events.

Francesca Jago

If you don't have the money to go out and buy a bunch of lights that's ok, you don't need to. You have a free lighting source available to you almost 8-10 hours a day, 365 days a year. Yep, the sun! Now you just need to know how to harness it.
