Networking. It’s such a dirty word. And with good reason—a lot of people are doing it the wrong way! I first learned how networking isn’t done during my first day in a Capitol Hill office when an oil lobbyist shook my hand and slid his business card into my palm, saying, “Hi there, Peter! Mind if I call you Pete?” My first thought was “Wow, apparently some stereotypes do exist for a reason.” And my second one was, “Actually, I do mind. I bet this guy thinks he’s a really smooth networker.” That isn’t what I’d call networking; it’s what I would call “not-working.” If you’re still reading after the pun, allow me to give you a number of networking tips that I hope you will find useful.
