I do work on networking, but it's really not that easy when you're a postdoc doing tons of lab work and by and large only meet other postdocs or students at local events. ... I'm at a fairly small place, so I accept this may be very different around big industry hubs.


I've generally found that when an activity is important to you, you will find time for it. It may require you to make some uncomfortable choices and to sacrifice some things, but you will have the time if you want to.

The only difference being in a "fairly small place" - as far as networking is concerned - is in the techniques you use to network. If you're in a hub, you can often get away with "face-to-face" networking (unless you're looking to move out of the area). If you're not in a hub, you need to pro-actively seek out contacts and use the phone (not email!) to talk to them.

Being in research actually gives you a bit of an advantage in finding potential contacts, because research is all about publications. Papers and patents are going to list the author's affiliations, so use that as a way to target your initial contacts.
