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!

You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
