The 13 Worst Networking Mistakes

11. Lying

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

It’s tempting to say, “So-and-So gave me your name and told me to call.” It might even get you a meeting. But eventually Such-and-Such will learn that So-and-So did not tell you to call. And you’ll have burned not one but two bridges.

Also, don’t exaggerate your experience or embellish your background. It can be tempting, especially if you are frustrated in a job search. But even if you’ve gotten away with it in the past, some day it will catch up to you.

12. One Night Stands
