Networking: Fool-proof Strategy to Break the Ice

Twice a month, I facilitate programs for a Manhattan based group of job seekers. During our most recent meeting, we had an extended conversation on the awkwardness of networking--how it's easy for some, but incredibly awkward for others.

It seems to me that problem with networking is that it is like riding a bike or swinging a golf club: the more you think about the process of doing it, the harder it gets. When you focus attention on yourself, you can lose your perspective and your balance. (Have you ever fallen over on your bike?)

Today, Kevin Donlin of the Simple Job Search published a great blog post with an anecdote to the awkwardness entitled "Networking is NOT about You."

Check it out. I think it's a fool-proof way to move your job search forward.

To your success,
