Many times, we feel the big ‘C’ is what gets us jobs. Well, maybe in the past! These days everyone wants employees who can actually deliver on the job after getting the job. Even if the big “C” is going to get you the job, you must be able to prove you can be trusted with the responsibility and deliver on that job.
Let’s quickly take a look at what comes before the big “CONNECTION”.
Most youths say “you can only get the great jobs based on who you know, not by your qualifications nor how well your interview went”. But the question is ‘how do you know who you know?’
You probably know a lot of people and vice versa but the crux of the relationship is what these people think about you! Do they know you as that unreliable friend who takes things for granted? Or as that friend who takes up responsibilities and ensures that you get things done in good time.
Are you too proud to engage in a friendly conversation with people you meet?
Your next opportunity to network might be at a casual party, and who knows, you just might be sitting next to the CEO who could get you that dream job! It could even be an investor who could take your business to the next level.
Every one likes a good reputation and definitely would not want to refer someone they don’t believe is responsible or trustworthy enough.
Now the big question is “CAN YOU BE TRUSTED?” That’s when the Big “C” can work for you.
