Networking is the single most effective job search strategy, technique, and method.
What is networking?
Let’s set the record straight. Too many people think that career networking is calling all your contacts (and going to networking meetings) when you’re out of work and need a job.
Absolutely not! It’s not enough to do the right thing. Are you doing the thing right?
Networking is a proactive method of job seeking and career planning and development in which you take control of the entire process.
Is it any wonder that networking – good, smart networking – is the single most effective way of finding a job as well as developing your career?
