How to Build your Network From Day 1

How to Build your Network From Day 1
Tips for Lawyers Podcast

00:00 / 21:19

You know you’re supposed to build a network, but you’re not sure why, or how.

As a young lawyer the process of building a network of relevant, meaningful industry contacts can be daunting.

As a result, we let our fear and uncertainty get in the way, stopping us from working on it from the outset.

That’s how I was: afraid.

“I’m too junior” I would tell myself.  “people don’t want to speak to me” I would say.

And it’s not true.

No matter your level of seniority there is no excuse to delay your networking, there’s just a way of doing it better, and smarter.

In this podcast I talk about:

  • Why you need to start your efforts at building a network right now
  • What you’re really doing when you are networking, and why it’s important
  • Strategies that you can implement today, no matter how junior you are, to start building up your contact list.
