    I have two LinkedIn accounts - one more personal, where contacts are my network of contractor buddies.

    Second one is my company one, listed on CV, kept purely for agents.

    Keep the two purely segregated.

    This.

    I make a concerted effort to keep in touch with people.

    Go for coffee, a beer or lunch with them. Be blatant when you’re looking to move and reach out to people asking if they know of anything you might be interested in.

    Above all else, be easy going, friendly and the sort of person that people want to work with.

    My last two gigs were through my network. I also recommend other contractors that I knew I could work with who were pretty much waved in on my word.
