  1. I really wish that more professionals and professors would emphasize, let alone include this, in their talks about networking. Yes, it is about who you know and the field that person may be in, but it’s also part of individual initiative to establish those connections themselves- rather than relying on someone else to make the connection for them.

    An attorney once taught me that building connections is the ultimate goal of networking. He said one way to build an immediate connection is to talk on the subjects of “health, wealth, or family” with that individual. I’m sure this worked for him, later that year he became a judge. Your mileage may vary.
