Looking for a new position or career takes time and effort, and most importantly, planning. There are resumes to create to highlight why you are qualified for the position to want. There are interviewing skills to brush up on. There are elevator pitches and handshakes to practice, and there is networking to be done. For some, the thought of networking may be daunting but it can also be fun and beneficial.
Many experts indicate networking is the most critical aspect of job hunting. Many positions are filled not from an online or newspaper ad but because of industry connections that the candidate already has. They say it is all about who you know and this is true in many cases. When done well, networking can help you land your dream job quickly.
