How to network virtually during lockdown

Hey, it’s Julie 🙋‍♀️ Do you feel like you’ve put your long-term career aspirations on hold until all this ‘blows over’?

Well, we’re now almost a year into the global crisis and it’s fair to say that, instead of waiting for it to pass, the world is learning how to live with it.

So what does that mean for you and your career?

It means that you should still keep aiming high and going after your goals.

Today, I’m going to talk to you about the importance of networking in achieving your goals.

👉What is networking?

Networking is the process of building relationships with other professionals.

👉What are the benefits of networking?

As a professional, you should always be networking and building connections throughout your career. Successful networking often opens new doors of opportunity for you and you never know when a new opportunity is going to come knocking. 

But networking doesn’t just mean benefiting yourself… It’s also about spotting opportunities to help other professionals too. 

👉How can you network during the pandemic?

🌐Attend webinars

🌐Make new connections on LinkedIn

🌐Interact with others’ posts on LinkedIn

🌐Join professional groups on LinkedIn and Facebook and participate in discussions

🌐Introduce yourself to companies over email with meaningful feedback on their products or services

🌐Form a relationship with recruiters

🌐Share articles with others

🌐Refer a job to a friend / acquaintance

Progressing your career isn’t just about gaining a promotion or applying for a new job. It’s also about the connections and knowledge that you gain and share along the way!

Happy networking!

Julie 💜
