An Insight for Your Advantage:

We assist clients in their career transitions . . . that is, going “In, Up and Out.” More often than people might think, clients share that their new career opportunities came to them from former workplace friends and former colleagues who had “moved on.” Some provided “inside tips” about open or soon-to-open positions. Some were willing to “spread the word” about a highly competent friend seeking to make a change; others initiated inquiries to HR.

Thus, we see former workplace friends somewhat akin to lottery tickets . . . you should never discard them, for they may one day represent “your ticket.” Rather, you would quite wise to establish and continually update a list, a spreadsheet or a database of their names, their contact info, and perhaps to drop them a note every now and then inquiring about their progress climbing the ladder of success.

In a difficult time in your career – which could take place any day – would you rather have “in your pocket” three “lottery tickets” or 300?
