Networking.
Duvall, Betty
Networking is an information giving and receiving system, a support system, and a means whereby women can get ahead in careers--either in new jobs or in current positions. Networking information can create many opportunities: women can talk about how other women handle situations and tasks, and previously established contacts can be used in clearing the path for subordinates or peers. In addition, networking offers support to other women in a business fashion. They can, for example, help women by informing them about jobs before they are advertised. Several key points can help networking work, including investment of time, the use of business cards, the establishment of an organized, structured system, the maintenance of a card file classifying members by subject categories, the maintenance of social and business contacts, involvement in several different networks, and the demonstration of trust and loyalty to the network.
