“What I do know about networking is this: It is an essential and continuous activity. You control the effort – but not the outcome. Networking is everywhere.”― J. Kelly Hoey


Companies are asking employees to work from home while others are getting furloughed or laid off as the novel coronavirus outbreak continues to spread around the globe.

For those searching for opportunities for employment, networking is the greatest tool for discovering opportunities. But with large group gatherings, daily activities and even dining in restaurants being put on hold or banned for the foreseeable future, several of the typical networking environments we all once knew have completely disappeared.

How much worse can it get?

Well, if you didn’t have enough to worry already about the fallout of COVID-19…think about these stats about networking recorded before the pandemic happened.

41% of networkers want to network more frequently but say they don’t ever have enough time.

-And shockingly 1/4 people don’t even network at all

That’s crazy! But there is some good news. 

Through the use of tech, meeting in-person doesn’t always have to be required to develop new relationships or even deepen existing ones. 

When will there be a better time than now, to discover effective ways you can network with others from the comfort of your own home?
