While you know it’ll help you advance in your career, maybe you’ve been holding off, because you’re not quite sure when (or where or how) to start managing your image.

You don’t have to network in one, specific way to grow your contact list.

But, you can choose where you’ll start—and the infographic below contains 26 strong ideas to kick things off (all inspired by the book The Road to Recognition).
