Looking for work?
Many job search industry professionals say that networking is the single most effective strategy for landing your next job. How’s your networking working? You may think you don’t know anyone who can help you with your job search. But you know more people than you think, and they are willing to help you. However, you need to reach out and connect with them first.
You’re hired: Leveraging Your Network – Job Search Strategies That Work, offers tactics to help you reach out to build and leverage your personal and professional network. “It’s not who you know it’s who knows you know”
You’re Hired: Leveraging Your Network – Job Search Strategies That Work puts you to work in learning how to use ‘best practices’ to create a professional network that will increase your success in landing your job. The content is excerpted from You’re Hired: Job Search Strategies That Work, with bonus articles covering a range of frequently asked questions about professional networking.
Networking is work. Your immediate job is to let people know ‘what’ you know and get to know ‘who’ they know. Your next connection may be looking for a candidate to fill an open position.
Your task is to become the only choice. The right choice!

Mistake #1: Having a curriculum vitae style of resume, rather than a modern, functional one.
Mistake #2: Not having a thorough understanding of the job requirements before interviewing.
Mistake #3: Not having influential, easily accessible references in place.
Mistake #4: Not being prepared to strategically answer questions in the job interview that highlight you as the best applicant.
Mistake #5: Crafting your resume in a way that highlights your needs rather than illustrating how you can solve a problem for the employer.
