I received a gracious golfing invitation recently with networking implications that took me back to an earlier time in my career. Unfortunately, I really stink at golf. I played what is known as corporate golf for years, essentially hitting the ball straight enough so as not to delay the game. But I quit the sport about five years ago and gave away my clubs.

Golf as a specific networking platform has been on the downswing for a generation. But as with any activity that mixes social interaction with business opportunity, it can still matter. Frankly, I’m thrilled that we are post-pandemic and socializing again! And so, it feels timely to talk about what I call “comfort hiring.”
