Virtual Networking Success10 Lessons
Do you enjoy the comforts of being able to work from home, choosing your own hours and even your own location of work, but feel like you are missing out on all of the benefits of networking?
Networking is traditionally something done while in the office and at big networking events. But in our modern world, many employees have more flexibility when it comes to where they get to work and that often does not include the office.
There are many benefits to working at home. You do not have to worry about fighting traffic, can choose to live wherever you want rather than having to be close to the office, and you can often choose how to get the work done.
Thanks to all the benefits, many companies are using remote work options as a way to attract some of the best work in the doors. There is a problem though. While you get to be comfy and work on your schedule, professional networking from your couch can be a challenge. You do not get the benefit of meeting people at work or seeing clients face to face.
This can leave many work at home employees feeling like they are falling behind in the professional world. You want to get out there and meet others, but you do not have some of the same options as others. You watch as your employees and coworkers get a chance to meet others and get a head start on your career.
Traditional networking is out the window. But what if there was a good solution? There is a solution.
Thanks to advances in technology and new ways that employees interact and meet with one another, virtual networking now makes it possible to reach others and make connections that were not available in the past. Through social media, Zoom, and other tools, you are able to get ahead and really meet people from all around the world.
Our guidebook, “Virtual Networking” is going to explore some of the different ways that you can reach out to others and really expand your network, without having to go into the office or worry about distance and other barriers.
