Chapter 7. Be Visible > Raise Your Profile

Raise Your Profile

The best way to come in contact with the same people again and again is to join organizations. Your memberships will help you develop and nurture long-term relationships. However, also think of organizations as places to become visible—to expand the number of people who know you.

Build your reputation among people who can assist your career. Take a high-profile role in organizations you belong to. Be active in professional associations, community and neighborhood groups, your alumni association, or volunteer and service organizations. Organizations give you opportunities for recognition and for affiliation, a place to stick out and a place to belong. Organizations provide proving grounds for new skills, especially leadership skills.
