Networking is an act or procedure of interacting with other people to share information and make social or professional connections. Making new friends, industry acquaintances, and even business partners are the goal of networking. You can quickly advance in your career with these new relationships. It becomes clear why networking is such a powerful tool when viewed in that way.

For TCN migrants, social networks have a significant impact on many aspects of their lives and serve as an important information resource. They grant access to data, such as information about employment opportunities and conditions in their host nation.

Migrants’ economic and social success in their destination countries is attributed in part to their involvement in social networking. Additionally, social networking aids in the effective application of their expertise and accelerates the integration process. It goes without saying that social networking is about more than just finding a job or a career. It also helps people find new social circles or companions, gives room to prove one’s own expertise or interests, and introduces them to the social and cultural norms of their host country.
