Community is everything! Your network is one of your most important career assets. A supportive network can tell you about upcoming job opportunities, act as accountability partners, put in a good word for you, provide expert advice, make introductions... the benefits are endless!
However, (there's always a however) authenticity and integrity are foundational for the meaningful network.
If you want to gain the trust and friendship of those around you, you need to get out of your comfort zone in order to engage, collaborate, and contribute. When you contribute wholeheartedly, you can't help but build goodwill and forge relationships.
Likewise, having an ulterior motive is a turn off, and seldom goes unnoticed.
Keeping collaboration and contribution as the cornerstone of your community-building is the first step in building a network that will be there for you now and throughout your career.
