9 networking tips for field-based global development professionals

By Shana Montesol Johnson on 23 July 2013 in

We’ve all heard how important networking is to the success of our career. But how can you network if you’re based in the field, far away from key decision-makers or unable to attend organized networking events like this 

Here are nine tips for those of you who are based in the field, or residing far from where your contacts (actual or desired) are located:

 

1. Reframe how you define networking
