Networking is about making contacts who can help you with your job search. Talking to people about their work, what it involves, and how they got to where they are can make your own job hunting more successful.
Networking is important, as it will not only allow you to develop your knowledge around a particular area (aka your commercial awareness), but you might also hear about any work opportunities that become available. It is worth remembering that many jobs are never formally advertised. Many work experience and temporary opportunities come through employers hiring those they already know through events or social media interactions, or who have sent speculative applications.
