  • If you aren't networking, you should be.

  • Networking connects you with useful or like-minded people and can provide a rich source of information about the industry or field you are attracted to.

  • And with 32 percent of Australian jobs being spread by word of mouth, it opens the door to finding unadvertised job opportunities.

  • So, what's the deal?

  • Oh my god, I don't know how to network, I don't know anybody. I'm so screwed.

  • Don't panic, you have a network already.

  • It's your family, your friends, potential workmates from the past or present, a whole bunch of people who know other people who know other people.

  • Networking is as easy as leveraging these people to connect with new contacts and new delicious opportunities.

  • Step one: goals. You need to know what you want.

  • You need specific and clear goals, what's your dream job?

  • What needs to happen for that dream to be a reality? Do you want a specific mentor? Well, who do you need to know?

  • What are you passionate about? What skills do you have?

  • How do these overlap? Who will find this useful?

  • Remember, if you know what you want, you'll be significantly more effective when you engage with your network.

  • Because, you'll know exactly what you need and people will know exactly what they can provide.

  • Step 2: be confident.

  • The most important step when networking is that you have to put yourself out there.

  • For many, the hardest thing to do is to overcome the hurdle of going out of your comfort zone, finding new people and engaging in the dreaded small talk.

  • At last, one-to-one relationship building is the most effective way to build relationships and thus, build a strong network.

  • So, it's all about that social engagement, baby.

  • Before you jump into events or work seminars or meetups or even some online connection, here are some tips to up your social game.

  • Be yourself. That's what's really cool, get excited about the things you like.

  • People like people who have interests and care about things.

  • Be generous with your time. If you can see a way to be helpful, act on it.

  • Don't approach people with an attitude of expecting something, go in with the desire to make a friend.

  • Be positive. People respond positively for positivity.

  • Small talk. Small talk can really suck, but it's much easier if you sincerely remain curious about the person you are talking to.

  • Everyone has at least one cool thing, try to find it by asking questions and actively listening.

  • Step 3: resources. Well, where are we going? Over here? Hmm, should probably work that out.

  • If you do your research and have a defined goal, finding resources will be easier.

  • You want to go to the moon, look up other astronauts.

  • Maybe reach out to a couple, check the appropriate websites and find moon meetups.

  • The Internet also makes connection very easy.

  • Websites like LinkedIn, are all about professional networking.

  • Social media will assist with connecting via groups and messaging.

  • And helpful meetup websites will help you find specific like-minded people.

  • So, get to a browser and have a look, you will find something.

  • Summary: set a goal. Put yourself out there.

  • Be yourself, be positive, don't engage new people with expectations and develop those small talk skills.

  • And take advantage of online resources.

If you aren't networking, you should be.
