As a sovereign professional, as in business in general, everyone says you must network.  Maybe it’s a terribly reserved, British thing, but networking sounds so mercenary, so manipulative, so transactional.  That perception is only perpetuated by the soulless, transactional approach taken […]

Getting a Job in 2025–Lynda Gratton
