Networking Resources

in Communication, Personal Effectiveness

During a recent presentation to the GRAPE organization, I outlined several networking strategies to increase the “health” of your personal network. (See summaries, Part I and Part II.) During the research for the presentation, I realized that there was way more content than the one hour could contain. So, here are additional resources, organized by different types of networking categories.

For Job-Seekers

Absolutely Abby Career Website : Advice organized by a daily theme. Example: Thursdays is “Ingenious Interview” tips.

JobAngels : A volunteer organization whose mission is to help bring people together in a community setting where each person commits to a single goal: to help just one person find gainful employment. : Owner Susan P. Joyce manages an award-winning employment portal w/over 8,000 links to employer recruiting pages by state, plus 5,000 more links to career and job search resources.

Thank you very much for the kind plug. I’ve appreciated the opportunity to utilize social media to connect to people. We’ve been fortunate to connect with and learn from some extremely high quality leaders like yourself!
