Networking for Success

Networking is critical in our day and age. We are constantly bombarded with advertisements, emails, status updates and sales pitches; it is vital to maintain personal relationships with professionals to stand out from the crowd. Business networking is not a new idea, put simply; it’s how we build trusting relationships with people of similar interest and talents in order to form a bond that is beneficial to both parties.

Does Social Media Really Matter?

When applying for jobs, it is vital that you keep an eye on your social media presence, yes… it does matter! Everything you post whether it’s on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, will most likely be seen by possible employers. Before they hire you, they want to be 100% sure that you are the person you seem to be. If your social media pages show them otherwise, you will get terminated from the job opportunity. Inappropriate images and foul-mouthed status updates should not be present.

Are social networks our best friends or our worst enemies?

We are all aware of the power of the internet and we also know that the digital content plays a central role in today’s society. This is the reason why all of us have integrated this tool in our everyday life.

As a matter of fact, we, as social networks addicts, web addicts in general, wake up sharing a #selfie, we eat a tweet-flavoured breakfast, we take the tube with our dear friend Instagram, we take “Facebook breaks”, we have lunch with Vine, we google just about anything and everything since “google is our best friend!” we fall asleep on Pinterest… We just consume all sorts of #hashtags all day long!

Better Email Writing

As I said before, there are so-called ‘coaches‘ for almost everything. But I still didn’t find anyone offering him/herself as an ’email writing coach’. So, let me share with you some obvious but useful tips to write an email, a tool that is as daily as dangerous.

I found it well described in this post of Bruce Mayhew (who is in fact promoting his training on email writing, but then it’s up to you to decide whether you need that), so I wouldn’t reinvent the wheel but just summarize it:
