How to help without hurting yourself
A reader asks the Job Doc: I run a small consulting business providing information technology expertise. I am doing well, but building my business. I work seven days per week. I love the work. The problem? I get about five networking requests per week. Some are from people I don’t know. Some are from people I went to college with 25 years ago. More often than not, they are friends of friends of friends. I want to be helpful, but this is turning into my part-time job.
