“It's not what you know, it's who you know.” It isn't just an old cliché, it is also a mantra that all business majors have etched into their brains. But if you're not face-to-face with a potential client or business partner, networking can be tricky. A good way to start networking online is by taking courses online. Do any of your classes have listservs or chat room discussions? Meet colleagues there and arrange to start an online study group. If your online university also has a physical campus near you, see if there are any academic clubs to join that are related to your field of study. Career services may be of use to you for networking and once you graduate, there is always the trusted alumni organization.
