We’ve often talked about the importance of your online brand and presence. Indeed, most major employers rely upon a hiring process that starts with submitting your resume on-line. But how do most people get their job? Networking. Getting out in front of others who may be hiring managers or who know someone who knows someone who’s hiring. The data suggests 85% of people get their job through networking. This is why attending conferences, networking events, career fairs, or joining a professional association is so key. You can always browse the EventBrite site to see if there’s an event near you to attend or look through MeetUp to see if there are groups you can join that share your interests. Even joining a group that centers on your hobby--playing soccer, hiking, or sailing--is a way to connect with others, too! Andale! Get out there and let others know how wonderful you are!
That’s it. #3LVCareerHacks on planning your next job search.
