Career counselor Tullier (Complete Idiots Guide to Overcoming Procrastination) argues that networking is "by far the most effective job search method," and in this volume, she explains how to do it-and do it in a way that isnt obnoxious or unproductive. She offers advice for figuring out whos already in your network of contacts and coming up with strategies for meeting and building relationships with the right people. She then explains how to expand your network and use it as part of your job search or career climb. Along the way, she thoughtfully addresses networking challenges: when the people youre trying to network with are difficult to reach or make false promises; if youre introverted and the idea of networking is painful; or if youre a student and feel you have no connections. Finally, she offers tips for making networking a part of your life for the long run. That includes understanding that its not an entirely selfish process, and that "the needs of people who help you should be as much on your mind as your own needs."
