Some things are worth repeating. 

This is one of them.

The rules of networking in Charlotte in 2009 have changed.  Repeat…the rules of networking in Charlotte in 2009 have changed.

Read it.  Now believe it.

Charlotte Trade and Tryon

Charlotte is known for change.  And we all know how things have changed over the past 12 months.  Our skyline, our economy, our housing market, our corporate giants (and perhaps our sense of invincibility) have all changed greatly…and quickly.

So it stands to reason that the art of networking in Charlotte has also changed. 

The Queen City’s movers and shakers are still here – only many are moving and shaking in different companies and in new roles.  Charlotte continues to welcome a host of new companies who bring new leaders to town from cities like Detroit, Minneapolis, San Francisco and others.

Now take this change and marry it with technology (especially social networking), and you have a brand new set ofLinked In Logo Wall rules on how to network (and job search) in Charlotte in 2009. 

Not using LinkedIn?  Get out of the way – – Charlotte’s movers and shakers are using tools (especially LinkedIn) in a very BIG way to facilitate networking and to make the art of doing business in Charlotte all the more effective and efficient.

Don’t get us wrong…the leaders here in the Queen City still value face-to-face networking.  But Charlotte’s leaders are a progressive group – and they understand the power of leveraging technology to optimize face-to-face networking opportunities to close business deals.

The June 2009 issue of Charlotte magazine features a cover story that speaks precisely to the changing nature of networking in the Queen City.  Learn more about the new rules of networking at http://www.charlottemagazine.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=7606&Itemid=1906.
