Networking Tip (November)
When reaching out to others to build your network, don’t take rejection personally. Everyone is busy. For many people, it’s just a matter of timing. If you catch them on a good day, they will happily talk or meet with you. If they’re swamped however, a simple “No” might be all that you get. Don’t take it to heart. It’s not necessarily a reflection of you or what you said. Also, when others approach you for help, remember how you felt when someone made time for you.
