Networking plays an important part in a career in development. Connecting with other people can provide opportunities for personal and career growth. In this episode we talk with Chris Free (@chrisfree), Partner and Creative Director of Chromatic, about the value of being able to network with other people. Chris shares how his career is partly the result of the people he has surronded himself with and how it has benefited his own growth. We discuss why networking with others is vital, the values and opportunities it provides, and go over a few methods for building those personal connections.
- Careers are not built in a vacuum, they rely on other people.
- Attend conferences, meetups and development events to find others who share your passion.
- Talking with others can be challenging, start by emulating someone you know who is good at it.
