The book The Networking Survival Guide aims to help people build and gain confidence in their networking abilities.

Dictionary.com defines networking as a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups that have a common interest. Networking can be very beneficial as it can raise your profile, open new doors, and is a source of fresh ideas. Summer is a great time to build new contacts and grow your network in order to achieve more academic and profession success in your future.

In the book The Networking Survival Guide Diane Darling focuses on two facets of networking which are: 1) the outside or the skills that can be learnt with some training and practice 2) the inside or the connection that someone feels towards others when networking occurs and the possible reasons why many people are hesitant to network.

In short, through the use of this book you will learn how to:

  • Set your networking goals
  • Form a strategic plan to reach your goals
  • Identify and develop potential contacts
  • Follow up on leads and turn them into opportunities
  • Make good things happen to your career
  • Become a resource for fellow networkers
