10 Networking Secrets to Propel Your Career and Job Search

From Keith Ferrazzi's "Never Eat Alone"

“For each and every thing you want to achieve in life — whether it’s landing a job, earning a raise or promotion or finding lifelong romance — there will be at least one person on the other end deciding whether you will achieve it and probably more than one person contributing to your cause. Everything we do can only be accomplished through and with other people. And since success of any kind requires relationships, the first thing you must realize is that you can’t get there alone.”
