Ever wonder why your friends are seizing job opportunities, while you are researching hours each day and applying to multiple jobs with no results?
Networking allows for ease in this process, and by connecting with a professional in your desired work space, you have:
- less pressure
- more credibility
- possibly less interviews / time to interview
- better chances
It all starts with your network, including your family, friends, teachers and co-workers then it is expanded by their network. So ask them who they know and then ask those people who they know. It is one large cycle and the larger the network you have, the more opportunity at your gate. This is also a reason why people join organizations, because they are networks segmented to your very interests. Find people in your field that have a similar interest and are older than you, so they can mentor you into those positions.
