Dear Experts, I'm currently employed in an industry I'm certain is not suited for me. It's not something I'm passionate about. I discovered this after completing my interview bucket list last week after your webinar. Therefore, I've begun a new job search. Since I have already begun applying to jobs with the companies I really love, will it be seen as inauthentic/self-serving for me to try and establish a relationship now? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#419 No. Networking can and should happen at all points in your career. Never stop networking. (@gradversity) Q#419 Ask 4 advice, info, guidance - NOT directly 4 job. Pple may help aftr talkg w/u, if don't feel on spot. (@juliaerickson) Q#419 Provide value first, then network. "Self serving" will never even enter their mind! (@beneubanks) Q#419 It is ideal to establish relationships/n'work BEFORE you apply for jobs, but it is never too late!
