The other day I shared a story about LinkedIn, networking, and the job search. Another alum sent in his story.
“I didn’t realize how right [the alum] was about the power of networking. It’s the only way to succeed. To put this in perspective, here’s my record: networking contacts 3/3 for getting interviews, applying online 0/35.”
While this alum is not going to keep his 100% hit rate for interviews through networking, it does demonstrate that spending more time networking and talking with individuals will provide better results that just applying online.
One testimony is a nice story, two is the start of a trend, anyone care to add a third?
