Networking is more than handing out a business card or sending an email, it is the confidence to introduce yourself, engaging in two-way conversation, and being committed to keeping up with your new connections. Networking can happen in person or online, and can happen formally, such as by attending a networking event, or serendipitously, like meeting someone in an elevator.
