When do I use MY networks?

When you need assistance

When YOU need assistance!

  • Refer back to network definition

  • Have you ever heard of social capital?

    It’s not always about what you know but WHO YOU KNOW.

  • Examples:

    Issue: Need letter of recommendation?

    Who do you know?:mentor, professor, counselor, employer

    Issue: Need a summer job?

    Who do you know?:Kyra at SCS, friend’s dad owns company

You should also use your networks when a friend is in need. However, use your better judgment to avoid a favor becoming a habitual expectation.
