Digital skills: Communication – Networking

There a range of ways of interacting with the world and more are being added every day. The method can be just as important as the message. If you’re looking for a new job or additional work this becomes really important. Forbes.com has some useful tips to get you started. As a business we find these helpful as most of our work comes in via referrals. Another way of expanding your network is to offer some help or advice for free. Everyone likes a helping hand. Just be careful how you do this. Check out the forums you’re thinking of posting to over a few months to make sure your audience is appropriate to your job or information search. Consider joining an appropriate association or organisation as they will be monitoring any forums to make their members are safe. Whilst it’s important to be careful in the digital domain the benefit of being able to address can definitely (with care) outweigh the risk.
