So, you’ve made it as a student. But what’s next? When you finish your studies you’ll want to secure a job, or perhaps start a business. But whatever you decide, you can’t do it on your own – you will need other people to open the door to the next big stage of your life. The secret, as so often stated, is not in WHAT you know so much as WHO you know. But the bigger secret is not in who you know but what they think of you! If someone is going to offer you a job, or be a client of your business, it won’t be enough to be skilled in what you do. If someone has got to know you, and considers you to be reliable and generally likeable, they are more likely to choose you over others with the same formal qualifications. So the way forward is clear; deal with everyone in a friendly and reliable way, and you’ll build your reputation accordingly. You’ll go far!
