Networking

Networking is the process of creating connections

NetworkingNetworking is a great way to gain information and advice about your chosen career field, learn about potential opportunities, inform people about your interests and create opportunities for yourself. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that 80% of jobs are now found through networking. The best jobs often go to people who network and sometimes, jobs are created for those people.

Basic networks are broken down into four categories:

  • Strategists: advice-givers, mentors, insiders to industry information
  • Targets: individuals at organizations where you would like to work
  • Allies: idea-generators and those who can facilitate connections and key information
  • Supporters: recommendations and references
