Nurting Networking

Blackpool, UK


When you’re entering the world of work, networking can be a great way to build connections and find new opportunities for employment and self development. Networking doesn’t necessarily mean going to ‘networking events’ but rather its the people you meet along the way and how you develop and maintain those relationships. You’ll need to think about who could help you and how you might be able to help them, plus consider how you present yourself, and make a connection and a great first impression.
