We all know how important it is to navigate and manage our own careers. However, it’s not always easy to know what to do or even when the best timing is to do it.

And your online networking efforts are even more fruitful—you’ve got hundreds of LinkedIn connections just waiting to be cultivated.
Andrew Sobel says this superficial view of networking just doesn’t, well, work.
