However, you don’t have to be looking to leave your organization to consider person-to-person networking. Great companies don’t want to lose their talent so they are creating internal networking groups. We advocate creating career communities–face-to-face networks of employees interested in career exploration–a supportive network to consider aspirations and career “what ifs” which support word-of-mouth networking that promotes real connections.
