Philip VanDusen - Networking Tips for Designers and Creative Professionals

The thing with networking is if you’re uncomfortable doing it, then you’re doing it right because true connections are built outside your comfort zone.

Networking is the key to landing your next client, project, or job. It’s the gateway to learning and professional development.

Going over networking tips and strategies I wish I knew when I was starting out as a designer and creative professional, I discuss:
● Networking as an introvert
● How to use networking to grow your business and move your career development forward
● Why networking is as much about giving as it is about receiving
● What Subliminal Reciprocity is and how to use it to your advantage
● Making cross-functional connections and turning referrals into jobs
● Why networking is a numbers game
● The advice I wish I knew when I was starting out in my career
● How widening your network allows you to take on more diverse projects
●Why investing in networking by going to events is investing in your own success
● My experience of starting a mastermind group that propelled me so quickly in my growth and allowed me to widen my connections further
