Build Your Network (2)
Most people will land a quality job through someone in their network. You have heard it a million times, “It’s not what you know, and it’s who you know.” Start thinking through all the people that are in your network and build a list. Reach out and start having coffee or talking on the phone with them. A lot of people are willing to help others in today’s job market. Take advantage. I have landed every single one of my jobs through my network, never by applying to a job online. The problem with applying online is that there are a million people with the same exact resume as you. A referral will go a long way. Take a look at my Job Toolkit for some resources to get you started.
