What if you don’t like networking and have no interest?  It drains you.  It never works.  You don’t have time.  You don’t need to.  It’s phony, self-serving, fake, inauthentic, superficial, conniving, manipulative and useless.

So get your resume and LinkedIn profile and business cards ready, apply for some interesting jobs online, and then get out of the house! Go meet the person who could connect you to your next job!
