You are unique. You have something very special to offer. So do many other people. But you have a secret weapon: this book. It will teach you how to networkâand thatâs the one skill that can give you near-perfect equality of opportunity.
80% of Americaâs job openings are never advertised. Networking can help you get those jobs. Employers need to see you as you really are. Networking lets you show them. Networking gives you contacts to get you in the door and advice from people whoâve been there.
As great networkers know, this isnât about sucking up or being a phony. Itâs about being your best self, creating lifelong connections, and building communities of people who help each other.
One step at a time, this book will help you overcome your doubts and fears, and gain all these powerful benefits. Itâs authored by three people whoâve been thereâincluding Dr. Renee Thompson, past Officer of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women. Theyâve done it. You can, tooâand itâs the #1 key to your success!
