The Power of Networking and Informational Meetings
Are you overlooking the power of strategic networking? Statistics show that at least 70% of jobs are found through your network. So, if you want to boost your chances of getting hired, you need to put yourself in touch with people who can help you learn about the hidden job market and, potentially, land an interview and a new job. Although COVID-19 might be viewed as limiting our ability to network, the good news is that now is actually the perfect time to connect with others. In this workshop, you will learn the ins and outs of purpose-driven networking and how to conduct productive informational meetings.
Presented by Amy Cleveland, TBJL Career Strategist
