“Networking creates magic! Networking has many benefits: opportunities for relationships, friendship, mentoring, learning, fun, and helping others. There are unlimited possibilities. In one instance, I introduced my mentee, who was looking for a job, to another volunteer whose company was hiring and offered to be a reference. My mentee got the job and doubled her salary. Magic like that doesn’t always happen, but it definitely won’t if you don’t put yourself out there and network!” – James
