Why is networking so important?

Many management assistants underestimate the importance of networking. I hear regularly from management assistants that as they have a permanent job, networking isn’t necessary. I then really ask myself: How is this possible?

It is no longer possible to not have networking into your life, the same goes for the life of a management assistant. As a management assistant, you are the business card of your organisation and often the first point of contact. At work, you meet so many people that can mean something for you. The level at which we, as a management assistant, work also entails that you get in contact with persons as well at organisational level as at strategic level. But you can also mean something for other persons. You as a management assistant are the one that can make the difference and can represent an important sentiment.  

It is always necessary to network, also if you do have a permanent job. And keep in mind that there can be a time when your permanent job isn’t permanent anymore. Then it is certainly important to have a network.

By networking you show that you develop, are aware of the important developments in your trade and it increases your network. By sharing knowledge, you can strengthen each other.

The number of service years with an employer does not always have that much value. This is the case with the developments in your career. But you must do something for it yourself. And that takes time, also private time, but also money and energy.

But do it, dare and have the courage!

Get out of your comfort zone as management assistant. Consult with your employer to facilitate the next steps in your career.
