Networking

Networking is talking to anyone and everyone you know to learn more about job opportunities and career decisions. As part of your job search, it’s important to understand many jobs are not advertised, and sometimes they are not even posted on a company’s own website! Lots of employers prefer to hire someone through someone they trust. But even if a job is advertised, isn’t it better you networked with someone in the company or industry who might be able to help or recommend you?

Networking is also great when you are deciding your career direction. Experienced people can help you understand an industry, an occupation, future trends, salary, and how to find a job.
