Book cover image

As a job seeker, you constantly hear these words: ‘80% of the jobs that are available never get advertised’ or even better, ‘Networking is the #1 way to find a job today’… and just the thought of networking [gulp] leaves you feeling confused and a wee bit nauseous.

Well, a good place to start is at your Library! Check out these titles for some background information on networking to enhance your career prospects. There may also be various networking groups in your area. Why not pay a visit to a few that may fit your particular needs? Or you could just talk to people! Remember your network is made up of all the people who can help you, the people they know who can help you as well as people whom you can help.

Perhaps these networking tips can help you get started. Don’t be afraid to network. Understanding and appreciating what networking is, and what it can do for your job search, can make a world of difference to your job pursuits.
