Networking. It's really not a dirty word. In fact, it's something you should be doing regularly, consciously and with purpose. As a legal recruiter, I regularly meet with some surprised reactions when I ask what networking a candidate is doing on her own. The surprise, I've found, often stems from a belief that if an attorney has particular credentials and enough experience, she does not need to engage in networking. It's as if networking is only for the weak and lesser qualified, and/or the brown-nosing, aggressive types.
