10 Things to Remember for Networking

Starting With 5 Benefits of Networking

The benefits of networking are as varied as the people who network, but there are a few universal benefits. Here are the top five:

  • It is an opportunity for exchanging fresh ideas. No matter how much research you do on your own, exchanging ideas face to face with like-minded people encourages new ways of thinking.
  • You become more visible and increase your network. It is important to stand out from the crowd. When someone meets you, you are no longer just a flat name on a screen.
  • It helps you find and open doors you might otherwise have missed.
  • It increases your chances of promotion.
  • You may get to help someone else. Helping, such as by putting in a good word for an individual trying to move up, not only helps them but also helps your own self-esteem. A win/win.

Before You Go

Keep these before-you-go tips in mind as you prepare for the next TEAC mixer:

  • Consider who is attending, and prepare a few questions in advance you might use to keep conversations going.
  • You’ve heard it before, but it is so important we’re telling you again – bring business cards. 
  • Prepare a short bio of yourself that you can give when meeting someone new.
  • Be ready to see and be seen. Not everyone is naturally outgoing. If it is difficult for you, get yourself mentally prepared ahead of time.
  • Bring a pen. After speaking to someone new, jot down something about them on the back of the business card they gave you to make it easier to keep everyone you meet straight in your mind.

It isn’t too late to experience these benefits for yourself. The TEAC Feb. 20 mixer will have opportunities to network with all levels and areas of the energy industry workforce as well as pro-energy business professionals. Click here to RSVP today.
