30 Networking Ideas That Could Change Your Life
I have a little challenge for you today! And I think you can handle it. Today’s episode is a little different. I decided to read one of my top blog posts from Classy Career Girl.com to you today on my 30-day networking plan challenge that I highly recommend. It could seriously change your life. Now the thing is that this challenge is meant to do in 30 days. One task each day. So today I just want you to listen to the entire challenge and each day’s activities. Then, I want you to go to the blog, find this blog post and actually do each task every single day. I know you can do it and I also know there is are so many opportunities waiting for you if you just step outside your comfort zone and do it. I’m cheering you on!

Most people don’t have a networking plan, even though part of the difficulty with networking is that it can get pushed off your priority list if you don’t make time for it.
That is why we recommend you put together a networking plan, so you know what you need to do every day to reach your networking and career goals – whether that is finding your dream job or getting that dream promotion.

Here are 30 Effective Networking Ideas:

1) Write down your goals.
2) Create a networking action plan.
3) Tell someone.
4) Find people for informational interviews.
5) Block off time in your calendar each week to network.
6) Make a list of people you have lost touch with.
7) Make a 2X2 list (or a 4X4 list if you are very determined!) and contact these people.
8) Do research on the people you don’t know.
9) Write out the questions you will ask during the informational interviews.
