Comment - Networking Tips

by Anthony from Job Search Mentoring

One of the stories that came up on my news feed was all about networking as a means of finding employment. In case you missed the article - here's the link to it:

Experts say networking one of best ways to find job

The points from the article are that networking is basically just talking to people. It points out that if you're not networking you are closing yourself off from real job opportunitities.

Why does networking work so well? As the article points out, folks hire people that they are comfortable with. So, if you've been recommended by someone whom the employer trusts, then that recommendation will work heavily in your favour if there's a job to be filled.

While networking is basically just talking to people and letting them know you are looking for work, it is possible to be more strategic iin the way you approach this. Take a look at the networking tips and effective networking pages for some more simple to implement ideas for using networking to find employment.

I'd also be interested in hearing from people who have found employment as a result of networking and information interviewing.

Best wishes
Anthony
