One of the most valuable things that can help you get where you want to be when it comes to career is having a trusted mentor. You are lucky if you have found that you can count on one when making the biggest decisions in your career, and it really works for a lot of people.

However, according to Fortune, this kind of relationship can also be limiting because you are getting a piece of advice from just one person. Instead of this, another resource you can find helpful would be your network of connections. Networking is one of the best strategies you can maximize so that you can be exposed to more opportunities and more possibilities; it is a way to be connected and stay connected with others.

We are wired to help others and active networking is vital to anyone's career growth. Here are some of the key benefits of networking and expanding it in your career.
