Networking

This is the key ingredient to finding a job! According to the Bureau of Labor, 70%+ of all jobs are attained through networking. Etablishing a list of your contacts is common sense and simple — but too many people wait until they are looking for a job to focus on a list of people to contact. Keeping a list should be an ongoing activity throughout your career.

One of the best ways to develop a Networking Contact List is one done by my son in New York City On his computer, he keeps a list of the following categories of people along with their contact information:

– People whom he has worked for.
– People who have worked for and with him
– His peers
– Anyone who has helped him in previous and current job searches
– Friends and relatives
– Professional acquaintances
– Appropriate social contacts
