Sunday is a perfect day to plan out your networking week. That’s what I’m doing again now.

With cup of coffee in hand  I update my networking spreadsheet with my new contacts, how I met them and what my next steps will be with each. It takes an hour or so but listening to great ’60s music keeps me going.

Then, while suffering through another Giants game (maybe this week will be different) I’ll start winding down.

In the evening, I’ll list my planned weekly networking activities along with what I hope to accomplish at each.

You may not consider this part of networking or job search, but it’s just as important as preparing for an interview or updating your resume.

What are you doing to prepare for the week ahead?
