Be it professional or to build friendships. it is an important tool to enhance our social and professional well-being.

Networking is comprehensively defined as a mutually beneficial interaction that involves exchanging ideas and information between individuals connected by a common career, industry, or interest. It is about mapping out whom you know, nourishing your relationships, and expanding by getting to know the people you don’t know.

Networking may seem natural for some and unnatural for others but it is a skill that can be practiced and mastered.
