Speaking Exercise:

Many people define networking differently. A Harvard Business Review article describes how people often think of networking as: “the unpleasant task of trading favors with strangers.” The article encourages people people to change their mindset toward networking. It says people should think of networking as: “creating a fabric of personal contacts who will provide support, feedback, insight, resources, and information.”

Record a voice message answering these questions:
1) Which of these definitions seems best to you? Why?
2) Talk about a time when networking helped you.
