Networking could be the single most effective way to find work. More than 60 percent of jobs are filled through networking.

Networking for your work search means:

  • contacting people you know
  • telling them you’re looking for work
  • asking them for advice or referrals to people in their network.

Your network is made up of the people you know and the people they know. Identify your network using this tool (PDF).

Other networking tips

Online networking can be effective, but it doesn’t replace traditional networking. It’s still a good idea to pick up the phone and call the people in your network or meet an employer in person.

Your Presence Online

You can learn a lot about an organization by networking with current employees. Be professional, courteous and cautious. You may get a reply from a senior person in the organization!
