Tips for Building Relational Equity (Video)

Networking is one of the most essential career management strategies, and it seems our readers agree, as proven by the popularity of networking content. In this recent Career Conversation with Seattle-based career coach Paula Fitzgerald Boos, we consider the topic further and discuss the real aim of networking — building relational equity.

Boo’s tips include:

  • Be intentional about your relationship-building efforts.
  • Think about your network in 360° by considering not just professionals more senior in their career than you but also your peers and those less senior than you.
  • Consider mentoring.
  • Make plans and goals around your relationship-building efforts.

More Career Conversations podcasts are available on the CFA Institute website.
