Roger, you mean you stopped?

Roger has asked a great question, one that is frequently overlooked in career management discussions. 

In a recent informal survey, 40 senior executives who recently completed a job transition said their biggest career mistake – and regret – was not devoting more time to strategic networking on an ongoing basis – every week, every month.  The most common comment?  Not appreciating the importance of maintaining a robust networking effort, even they were not in the job market.
