Getting Work

How can networking help me get a job?

The majority of jobs are found by word of mouth, or by someone passing information to a friend, family member or associate.  The more you, the job seeker, talk to others about your job search and your enthusiasm for getting the right job, the more likely you are to get a lead that may develop into a job opportunity.  A lead may be a connection to someone who is hiring, information about an opening, or a connection to someone who might connect you to someone or something else.
