In an earlier post, I talked about the importance of having a strong network and how my network has helped me gain new experiences. Yesterday, my network helped be secure a new contract position that has the potential to move my career in a new direction.
While my skill set, experience and desire to learn and write secured the offer (in my opinion), I would have never have found out about the opportunity without the help of Samantha, my former editor at Center Square Journal. She recommended me for this position and connected me with the right parties. As a result, I interviewed and secured a new contract opportunity that has the potential to fulfill the desires I shared with you in my last post.
I spent a lot of time this wk pimping friends & recommending them for paid gigs. We shld all do this more. @jeannevb
Keep in contact with your network and pay it forward. You never know if you can help enhance someones career by recommending them for opportunities. It can make a world of difference to them.
