The Triangle of Tragic Mismatch!


What NetworkingTrips aims to do is fairly simple, and fun! Check out the self-explanatory triangle above. This explains how very different approaches the job seekers take in looking for that crucial next step and the approaches that employers take for while looking for that next guy they can depend on. Looking at this, no doubt it is depressing that we look for each other the wrong way. But it also tells us usually our job searches become so frustrating that we end it with “anything will do”! Now that’s not good, is it?

NetworkingTrips takes you to that lovely vacation where quite a few industry guys get to know you and you get to know them so well that you can depend on them to make that well-planned and well-desired career move at the time of your choice.

Isn’t it all about controlling our careers, which essentially are almost one third of our life and deeply impact the rest two thirds of it as well? So, well, it’s time you took control, and made preparations. Come on a NetworkingTrip – start to control your career!


Networking Opportunities in the IT/ITES Sector

The IT/ITES sector is one of the most populated sectors in the global business industry. It is one of the most fastest-moving industries and ones that inevitably affect changes in all the other industries. Every single industry requires IT to run its most basic to its most advanced functions. Therefore, it can be left to the imagination of the smart people what are the immense ceiling-less possibilities to grow one’s career in this sector.

The Indian IT sector grows annually at the rate of 25%. For every 1 job created in the IT sector, 4 additional jobs are created indirectly. This makes it one of the most influential employment sectors. It is the largest private sector employer, employing millions of people overall.

And what are the ways to stay informed about the industry’s growth path; get to know of the best opportunities; keep an upward career progression; achieve aggressive personal growth?

Networking is thus, an essential. Answer the following questions honestly:

–          How many IT conferences and seminars have you actually gone to?

–          At these conferences and seminars, how many business cards did you collect?

–          Out of those new business cards, how many people can you now just give a random call to discuss any of your career matters?

Networking Trips is one of the best avenues to set yourself on a growth chart. Come to these NetworkingTrips where you meet professionals with their hair down – hence, you get past the stiff collars and actually, really get to know them well enough.

What exactly does networking do? If “working” is not a bad word, then “networking” is not either.

Networking provides you with opportunities to reach a better platform and show your capabilities to a different set of audience and co-workers. It provides you with opportunities and the rest (like, performing well on it) depend entirely upon your capabilities.


It is positive. Networking can be as positive or as negative as you like it to be.

Being open and positive to new people, helping them out, seeking help & advice from them are the positive aspects of networking… and that is how you end up making some good friends in life – by opening yourself up to strangers and being genuine.

The working community – the entrepreneurs, the professionals, the business academic community – everybody agree that knowing people is one of the surest ways to getting new opportunities and that is something you definitely cannot do without if you want any success at all.


People and our careers. When we think of our past workplaces, it is always the people that come to our mind before memories of our work do. And this is because, people matter in your career – they affect your emotions at a workplace, they affect your dedication to your work, and most often our decisions to leave a workplace have more to do with the people than the work. All of this proves that people are important in our careers. And we must never take them lightly.

Always be open to meeting new people, getting to know them very well, getting them to know who you really are – it can go a long, long way.

Social networking websites do not ever get you to meet complete strangers and meet them well enough to allow them to recommend you or you to recommend them. And that kind of a “friend list” or “contact list” is as good as none.

Our life is as good as the people in it… so why shy from networking!
