It’s What you Make it

By Arin Contreras, Assurance-Tax Intern, Medford, OR Office

Networking is a rather intricate part of professional success. Per the Business Dictionary, networking is defined as the “[Creation] of a group of acquaintances and associates, [kept] active through regular communication for mutual benefit.” The art of networking can be quite the balancing act as you endeavor to implement and expand your social skills, develop trust in relationships, and learn more about your role in your business, the market, and crisis resolutions you need as you become more involved in the decision-making process.

But it is very likely that you will reach inevitable lulls in billable work coming your way that leaves room for admin-type projects, like scanning files into previous client binders, among other things. My advice: become an avid, ambitious scanner.
