MBA Career Corner - Networking
How To Build Real Relationships In The Virtual World
Let’s face it. Networking has moved online. And that’s great news. Professional associations provide you with venues to get to know people in your local community, but that’s limiting. The web affords you an opportunity to connect globally with people who share your interests and passions. You can greatly expand your network through social media and online communities.
