Be sure to take note of what she has to say about networking uncovering the “hidden job market”…

Josh: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?

Cindy Chernow: People seem to distinguish Business Networking as more purposeful. They see it as a way to meet specific needs as opposed to the more general life long relationship building. In either case, it is all about relationship building. I like to remind people that Networking is only one letter away from Not Working.

In today’s global economy, it is the singular most important skill one can possess. Networking opens doors; uncovers the hidden job market; and is responsible for the hiring of 75-85% of all jobs. More importantly, in today’s workplace, it helps people work smarter not harder. People are our greatest resource. Knowing who to call and where to go is the skill set successful people share in common.

Josh: Can you share one idea that someone could put into practice that would help them to improve their business networking skills?

Cindy Chernow: Be visible. There are no opportunities where you are not. Meet as many people as possible but in the process always be connecting others. Be a resource for others as much as you expect others to be a resource for you… “what goes around comes around.” Remember to make your “net” work.
