Opinion: Networking

Oftentimes as young professionals we connect with more experienced folks in our industry hoping to leverage their skills and expertise. We want a mentor. We want their insights on the work we are doing. Or we just want to further connect within our industry’s network. Now all of those things great, and will help you develop in your career, but as young professionals we constantly forget that relationships are a two way street.

Now, some people are abundantly generous and will give their time and insights without asking for anything in return. But we, as young professionals, do have something to offer as well. We need to remember that we can also bring something to the table. In most instances, to truly build effective, long-lasting relationships both parties have to put in work. Giving back is the glue that holds relationships together. And as professionals in our 20s and 30s we have so much to give. Whether it be new perspectives and ideas, some tips on social media, or just lending an ear, we have plenty to offer. 

Bring value to the table, contribute, collaborate, and engage in all of your relationships and they will be all the better for it in the long run.
