    A new member shared with me that he's recently graduated and is new to the job market. He's following the BestStepEver roadmap to put him in the best possible position to build his career and make a flying start.

    The topic on Social Capital was a huge eye-opener for him. He made a list of everyone he knows in the field of work he's interested in and came up with 12 contacts to approach to help him find work. Within two days of activating these hidden assets he's already secured an interview!

    Before this he had never sat down and thought about his social network as a tangible asset that he can use to support him in his career. He's now on a mission to grow his network and to reciprocate where he can in order to ensure that benefit flows both ways.
