Here, Joe Shew shares his networking advice for other career professionals. One of the most common tips for professionals is to network. Networking is something that almost every business professional has to do at some point or another. Sometimes it can seem like just a few people actually know how to do it. The truth is that a network is just a group of people who are connected. Wherever these contacts come from, they can be a source of referrals or other leads in the business world. An excellent way for professionals to expand their networks is to attend networking events. These are great places to meet like-minded people who are also highly motivated.
