Networking

Build Your Skills

What is Networking?

Networking involves using the vast numbers of people that you know -- your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, customers, vendors, associates, etc. -- as information sources for job leads.

The more people in your network, and the more people each person in your network knows, the greater number of job leads.
