Don’t Go It Alone: Build Your Board of Directors –
Learn How to Network Effectively
Career success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. You can lay the foundation for future professional success by learning how to work the key relationships you have and identifying the knowledgeable professionals you would like to know. Networking is 3x more likely to get you a job than applying directly. Finding a job is all about warm contacts (people who are familiar with your skills, strengths and professional goals to refer you and will answer a phone call or email).

What’s a Board of Directors? A board of directors (BoD) is a group of individuals, elected to represent a company’s shareholders—or in this case, YOU! Their primary functions are to establish policies for corporate management and oversight, and to make decisions on major company issues. Your personal BoD isn’t just a group of people who work for companies you’re interested in—they’re personally invested in the same issues that drive you, offer mentorship, guidance or wise counsel. And you’ll find them through networking.
