The Good Ol’ Network

No one can argue the benefit of a job seeker having connections—friends and associates who can do one or more of the following:
◆ Introduce you to people in their networks who might help your career development.
◆ Turn you on to job openings they know of.
◆ Give you insider industry advice regarding job applications, answers to interview questions, and salary negotiations.
◆ Serve as job and character references.
Consciously or unconsciously, you’ve been developing your network for years. Now that you’re in job search mode, you’ll want to build and capitalize on your network because doing so might very well lead you to your next paycheck. That’s where online social networks come in.
