Your Checklist: 6 Keys to Networking Like a Pro

  1. A great personal story - What makes you unique, your competitive advantages, and important parts of your story will best connect you to the career you want.
  2. Look the part - First impressions are imperative for the career you want. Make sure you're dressed to impress.
  3. Carry yourself professionally - Not only is it important to look the part, you also need to act the part. Having a warm smile, confident demeanor, and positive energy, makes a difference.
  4. A strong, professional online presence - Your online presence is an extension of your brand. Ensure that you're telling the best story of yourself online.
  5. Tools that work for you - Your toolkit for networking is your resume, visual resume, and LinkedIn profile.
  6. Practice - Networking can feel awkward as you're learning to do it well. The more comfortable you get telling your story and asking questions, the easier it'll be for you to dive into any situation and view it as networking.
