Networking is the #1 thing between you & a job right now.  Did you know that 90% of jobs aren't even posted?

Most jobs are referred either internally or by someone recommending someone from the outside.  Let's get started on what you might be missing in these MUST READ tips to start networking from scratch...


  • People to network with: friends, relatives, neighbors, colleagues, former co-workers, club members, and members of religious affiliations.
  • An easy way to develop a list of contacts: Get a piece of paper and pen. Give yourself 10 minutes. Then write down the names of every adult you know, working or not. You'll be surprised how many people you really know. This is your network.
  • Your network leads to other networks. People you know are primary contacts. People you're referred to by people you know are secondary contacts. Both are helpful sources of information.
  • Don't assume the old person who lives next door who hasn't worked for 30 years can't help you. How do you know whom she/he knows? Ask.
  • It's not who you know but who you are willing to know. Become active in professional, social, civic organizations. Meet as many people as you can and get the word out.
