7 Steps To Social Networking Success [INFOGRAPH]

GovLoop recently hosted an awesome online training with Heather Krasna, an expert career coach who has been helping people network and land gigs for many years. As an expert in all things careers and networking, Heather sent us an impressive document, detailing the 7 steps of the networking process. We then transformed it and out came this pretty nifty infographic!

@Charlene - is a new site where you can make an infographic out of your resume - here's an article about it:

That's an awesome  info graphic. According to Larry Bafia, previous animation director in Dreamworks, a good graphic or animation is using simple graphic or simple and short animation to tell a big story.

By the way, I have more details on this process in my book, Jobs That Matter: Find a Stable, Fulfilling Career in Public Service.

File this under "Irony": The Share button doesn't include LinkedIn.

This is a fantastic guide and I'm sharing everywhere. Really systematic and I especially like the prioritizing filter for contacts.

The reminder to stay in touch is critical. I can point to people I've recruited to apply for openings with my university, set up with informational interviews, or referred to unadvertised openings elsewhere I  knew of because of two things: I was impressed with their talent, and they made sure they stayed in touch so they were top of mind when an opening came up. You can't talk to me once, then disappear, and get anything out of our connection.

That's a speech I gave to everyone who interns with me: "Use me! Stay in touch!" I am stunned at how few of them took advantage of what I freely offer even though I tell them the success stories. The ones who did stay in touch are the ones who landed jobs they learned of through me.

@Jeff - It was more of a joke than anything but it got me thinking about how this is an awesome guide that could be made "interactive."  Imagine clicking on different pieces and having access to tracking tools to help you accomplish them.  Maybe you could click on section 3c and use your personal GovLoop/LinkedIn/Facebook contacts and categorize them by relevance. Let me know if you want any more ideas.

@Jana- any luck getting it yet? The file size is a bit large so it may just take extra time to render depending on the speed of your connection. If it's still not working just let me know, and we can send you a copy.


@Charlene- not sure if there are complete templates where you can just plug and chug with whatever info you want, but you're right- with graphical representation of data gaining popularity these days, it sounds like it could sure be useful! However, I do know there are certain infograph elements that are available to make the process easier so that might be something to look into. No matter what though, you're most likely going to need access to Adobe programs...


@Stephen/Kevin- autotune an infograph...what would that even look like I wonder?

Wow -- this infograph is great!  I'm seeing more and more infographs these days.  Do you know if a template is available to produce our own infographs?


Comment by Jana Opperman on May 5, 2011 at 9:22am
I'm not getting an infograph at all here-are there any secrets to seeing it?
Comment by Laura Bennett on May 5, 2011 at 9:01am
The categorization of contacts and the organization on level of how well know them is utterly genius!  Thanks.
