The networking utility is the foundation of our community. It is similar to other networking utilities in its theory, but the DrivingSales.com platform was developed exclusively to connect auto industry professionals and facilitate information sharing. To network, one must first create a profile by completing a simple form about their career experiences, objectives, and other auto industry related items that may be important. The profile is your ticket to participate in various community features and also acts as your proxy to connect with other professionals.To connect with others, you can search them out on the site or invite them directly by sending them an invitation. Anyone who accepts your invitation (or any invitations you accept) puts a link to their profile in your "My Network" page to help you manage relationships with these associates. You will receive network updates if they get promoted, change employers, or share updates to their network.The more people you are connected to, the more opportunities that will come your way within the industry, including job offers, hiring resources, collaboration partners, referrals, etc., etc. The bottom line is that it's not really what you know, it's who you know. We'vegot the best tools to connect you to the right people in the industry to keep your successes growing!
