What to do when networking isn't working - Fortune Management

What to do when networking isn't working - Fortune Management | Job Advice - on Getting Hired | Scoop.it
For those who send out plenty of networking emails and phone calls only to hear nothing but silence, the question isn’t why they should network, but how. A few things to consider.
Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

The article covers how to network and reminds everyone the importance of networking:

 

 "Networking continues to be the most effective way to find a new job, beating out social networking sites like LinkedIn (LNKD) and Internet job search engines like Indeed.com." Based on a report that was conducted a few years ago.

 

Please read the article that is filled with stories, advice, and tips. I believe that you should have a goal in mind for each person you reach out to. That means you need to think...what does success look like, and what will I ask this person to do for me.When meeting with a potential connection, ask the person if it is okay to send your resume to them. If they could pass along to the hiring manager, or to the department for that appropriate area, you would be grateful.

 

When you ask for permission, and are specific regarding what you are asking them to do, your chances of getting your resume passed along increases.When you do follow up by sending your resume, thank them again for helping you!

 

People are busy, and you may not get a response.That is okay, all you can do is make connections and do what is within your control. Please share with us your success stories...we would love to hear from you!
