In order to succeed in the professional world one has to make sure that every step taken is carefully planned. As a graphic designer, professional networking can play a very important role in your success. However, I have seen most of the designers ignoring the importance of networking because they have a lot of other things to handle. Yes, other things such as working on current projects and trying to get more projects are important too but, one should never neglect networking. You will have to take out time for this activity otherwise you can delay networking forever.
