Career Tips to Accelerate Your Career Success

The Power of Peer Networking

The Power of Peer Networking

When you have a call with us, you’ll notice I talk a lot about the power of the hidden jobs market and the power of networks. We always try to connect our clients to people who might add value to their job search. Often, these people aren’t recruiters or head hunters, but your peers.

Of course, I advocate growing your recruiter network, but as I mention in my book Reverse Headhunting, nurturing and growing your peer network is another valuable element in the executive level job search, but can often be a neglected part of the ‘day to day’ once in a new position.

So I’d like to advocate here and now that you continue to grow your peer network, even when you have landed that new role after possibly a few months of slog.

The benefits can be numerous; senior level leaders are notoriously isolated in terms of having a sounding board or even someone outside the business that they can share ‘war stories’ with, and to perhaps get a different perspective to help them no only progress in their careers but also to help the business they’re currently managing.

So whether you’re rushed off your feet in a new role, or actively seeking a job, keep the peer connection aspect in mind; it can open doors.
