Improve Your Social and In-Person Networking Skills

Johanna Rothman, Rothman Consulting Group, Inc.

You don’t have to be a social butterfly to succeed with social networking. As a manager, tester, or QA professional, you need to differentiate yourself from the pretenders. If you are a “doer,” it’s time to start building your reputation at work and extending your reach on social networking sites, discussion forums, through online participation and at conferences like STAR. Whether you are searching for a new job, recruiting a candidate, or looking for new ways to solve problems, you need to know how to network. However, as a professional, you want to network with authenticity by making a “warm” connection—having a reason to connect and something to give. Johanna Rothman helps you recognize and analyze your current business relationships and plan ways to expand and extend your networking. Leave with an action plan and a new, budding network to help you implement that plan.
