Networking Your Way to a Job is a Good Strategy
You can post your resume on hundreds of job boards. You can join up to 50 groups on LinkedIn; have
your profile posted on several social networking sites, yet still be waiting for the phone to ring.
All the traditional job search methods are designed
for the mass population. Continue to participate in
those traditional methods, but also start thinking
HR McNeilly, LLC. is a “Diversity Supplier” and
has been certified by the Veterans Administration
as a “Veteran Owned Small Business.”
Strategic thinkers will often view their job search and careers for the long term. They're not too
interested in today, next week, or even the next few months. They've got their sights set for 6 months
from now or longer. That's where networking can be the key to your success. Take the time to learn
from others and participate in other groups. You'll never know who you will impress and they might
invite you to become part of their network.
When you reflect on what exactly is networking, you realize networking means getting to know
someone. If you are looking to become a senior manager or director, then networking might be your
only way of reaching those positions. If that position is critical to the organization, the hiring managers
are not likely to hire someone straight off the streets. They are going to first check with their own
networks, their trusted colleagues networks, and referrals.
HR Dept: as a new startup, I will
give you a better deal on a case
by case basis depending upon
your needs and timeframe.
Helping others is another good way to build your network. I
know quite a few struggling professionals who are seeking help.
They have a lot to offer but don't realize it. Instead of asking for
help, try giving it freely to others. This will build your network.
When you help others along the way, they will stick with you for
many years and become a key part of your network.
There once was a common saying or idiom “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” In many
instances, that phrase is still true today.
An independent survey of over 500 Americans in December 2009 revealed that 95
percent of American consumers said they feel a sense of trust and gratitude towards
veterans. And 70% said they’d be more likely to buy from a veteran-owned business
than from a business not owned by a veteran!
