Networking is the most important part of your job search. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 70% of jobs are found by candidates or filled by employers through networking, so it is critical that you develop and use this skill. It is one you will use throughout your life.
Open your networking conversations with a question that anyone could answer with a "Yes.": Would you share your experience? Would you be willing to give me some advice? For more ideas about how to network, go to our section on Informational Interviewing. We also recommend checking out our Linkedin for Job Search.
An informational interview is a meeting with a professional in your areas/companies of interest, in which you ask them questions regarding their occupation and industry. It is an excellent way to research jobs and get personal insight from an industry expert.
