10 Tips for Networking Rehabilitation from Social-Hire by Kim Monaghan
1. Ask lots of questions. Help guide the process by coming prepared with targeted questions that keep you both on track and on time.

2. Be a good listener. People love sharing their story and it’s a great way to learn from other’s experience and expertise.

3. Shoot for face-to-face. An in person meeting is more personal, expressive and demonstrates respect for another’s position.

4. Be your best. Show your strengths, but not in a domineering way. People enjoy connecting with others who are “going places” with purpose and pride.

5. Be at your best. Dress for success, be kind and gracious and treat the other person as if they have the authority to hire or promote. They just might.
