15 Out of the Box Networking Strategies

Connecting people with other people or things they benefit from as well as doing things we are passionate about can provide ample opportunities for networking. I will share 15 ways I have networked without thinking it was networking!

Expand your professional network1. Helped Someone
2. Asked for Someone's Help
3. Wanted to know more about someone 
4. Take a class
5. Forge Alumni Ties
6. Kept in touch
7. Joined a Committee at Work or College
8. Volunteer in the Community
9. Volunteered to Make Office Work Efficient
10. Introduced people or organizations
