Do it before you need it. Genuinely just meet people, share notes, etc. and keep in touch. Don’t just reach out at the beginning of a job search. Even if happy one current role, lots of value you can bring to current firm by building your network

Just be straightforward with your intentions. Folks are busy and like to get straight to the point these days
