With the many demands our busy careers (and lives) place on us every day, it’s easy to overlook the value of making personal connections in the professional world. It may often feel like there's little time or incentive to cultivate such relationships, but networking, far from being a drain on your scarce resources, represents an important investment in yourself and your future.
