Remembering that the goal of networking is to establish relationships in your job search. To help you achieve your objective, steer clear of these three networking no-no’s.
1. “Do you like your job?” (or any closed-ended question)
Closed-ended questions can stop a conversation cold when the person responds with a “yes,” “no” or other quick response. Cue the chirping crickets.
Open-ended questions are a better alternative because they get the person talking — and most people love talking about themselves. Make sure you listen up: Asking follow-up questions will show you’re interested in the conversation.
