We have all heard that 80% of jobs are gained through networking. Question is: as a Product Manager or Marketer – how do I actually do this? You don’t think about it until you are facing uncertain times in your company, or are unemployed looking for a job. After reading over half a dozen books by ‘experts’ on networking – the core element of job networking How-To’s are still completely missed.
An interactive session to review several observations on Job Networking based on the results of over 215 network meetings. We will discuss the core of what to say during the networking meeting itself – for success (what the books DON’T discuss), and what to do for each of the different meetings: Open, Targeted, and Opportunistic.
This discussion is based on one journey, analytics and the discussions of the audience – NOT a networking ‘expert’. Like most of us at the event, the presenter is a Product Marketer / Manager… not a recruiter or in the talent industry.
