Thumbs up What?? Who??

Im sure most are familiar with the adage "Its not what you know, its who you know". Do you agree with this? Disagree? Some other 3rd thing?

To an extent, it is who you know. But you can find yourself in a place thanks to who you know where what little you know will catch up to you.

'Networking', as much as I hate it, is an important part of most professions.

On top of that being an amicable, confident and competent worker is key to being somewhat succesful.

who you know will get you far, but what you are will keep you there. a good contact with someone doesn't mean anything if they can't use you.

It's who you know. A great example is the clowns that are in Congress/Senate....and to a lesser extent local politicians. These people are some of the biggest idiots and bafoons on the planet, yet get appointed powerful positions...especially AFTER they're done "serving".

Management is also one of those fields where usually the biggest kiss-asses get the job.

This.

It's funny, because I got both my internships during college* - the latter of which resulted in my now job - at least partly thanks to a professor who was talking about me to a lot of people in the field. The reason she did this was because I was the only person to show up to all her classes (a lot of people just didn't bother coming at all), and because I actually did my work well and was friendly to her (and my other professors for that matter). Now the thing is, I also did my work well (as was clear through my grades and the feedback I got), and am certain that I wouldn't have gotten as much help from my professor had that not been the case.

*We had to do two for college credit - one of 5 months abroad during our third year and then a year later another one of 2 monts.

Unnecessary dichotomy. Wouldn't somebody have to know something for them a person to know in the first place?

It's idiotic.

You can know anyone you want, but if we are thinking in absolutes, if you don't know anything knowing people aren't gonna help.

Who you know is ultimately how you get your foot in the door. And you can either get to know people through your social skills or what you know. You don't need to know anything for people to want to do things for you
