Networking is about relationships, not sales. It involves being able to clearly articulate your interests and passions so that people who share these or those who are happy to assist, can quickly determine how they can help. In order for this to work both ways, it is also about understanding how to ask questions and interact with people so you too can help them in a way that builds mutually beneficial relationships and strong networks that can serve you on an ongoing basis.
