The buzz word bandied round today
A “catch all” on the state of play
Explaining how we get in touch
Is Networking – it means so much;
Not what you know but whom you know
And whom they know and on we go
The friend of a friend knows just the thing
A vacant job and whom to ring.
A widespread net ensures a catch
From chance encounter, a good match
Socialising over drinks
Or maybe coffee - you make links.
When face-to-face – what are the vibes?
Social media makes huge strides
But intuition rarely lies
When you look into a person’s eyes.
Your photo with emailed C.V.
Though quickly sent will often be
Buried under a growing pile;
Your best bet is a friendly smile
An open mind, a firm handshake;
Good first impressions often make
Doors open when you least expect it
So take the stage and stay connected!
