Today I am not talking about web networking, I am talking about human networking. Networking is very important in life. No doubt. But is it so much important for your company that you don't count anybody else rather than your network?
When you don't have enough people in your area, networking can be a very good tool to find the right people for your company. Things has changed a lot now. People are migrating from every where in this world. Number of skilled population are higher than any time. Now if you still stick with your networking then you might be losing people who were much more skilled and qualified for your company.
What do you think about those skilled persons who are not in your network? They might not be getting good job or opportunity to grow themselves and to help companies to grow, only because of good networking.
So, for education which is more important now? Good skill or good networking?
