When speaking with many people, one key skill always comes up. The power of networking.
There are many amazing positions and opportunities hidden for you and I. You need to know the right people, no matter if you want to become a famous actor or the future director of technologies and one way to gain them is to know the right people.
Networking is also hard. You need to know where to go and with whom to talk with. Also, there is an opportunity cost. Is it better to focus on your own things or to invest the time to meet new people?
With a little bit of luck, we can all become better at networking and find those hidden opportunities.
