Evaluate the strength of your networking skills:
For each skill, use the slider to indicate range of your skill strength between low and high. Try to give an honest and accurate assessment of your strength on each item. Those in italics are considered essential for mastery of this competency.
The closer to low your rating, the less accomplished the skill (e.g. incompletely, unsuccessfully, or never).
The closer to high your rating, the more you have accomplished the skill (e.g. completely, successfully, or every time).
