Description

Many people find networking unnatural, difficult, or daunting. But networking is too important to finding a job and building a career to be dismissed – especially for graduating students entering the "real world" for the first time. Faulkner and Nierenberg help the novice networker get started, take "baby steps", build confidence, and grow into a successful networker one step at a time. In short order the reader will learn how to flourish this new skill and develop and grow a career-enhancing network that will sustain him/her for life.
