The Water CoolerI’m in search of a new position within my current industry. How can I build my professional networking circle? Posted by Erik Boyd2 Responses Favorite Share Lauren Marcy April 29th, 2016 I would begin with building your LinkedIn network because it’s easy and cost-effective. Add former colleagues, industry leaders and former managers and begin to build a large circle of influencers who can help you advance your career. From there, ask industry leaders and network connections for coffee or lunch to discuss their roles and organizations to get a foot in the door.
