Sep 25, 2017

Dawn Rasmussen, President of Pathfinder Careers shares her contribution to Land Your Dream Job Anywhere.

How effective is networking? If you apply for a job online you have a 2% chance of getting an interview. If you apply through someone you know you have a 50% chance of getting an interview. Direct networking is that impactful.

Are you thinking, “but I’m not a type ‘A’ networker. How do I practice?" You should be proactive and put yourself out there by:

  • Growing an informal connection with someone through continued follow-up.
  • Taking the fear out of talking with unknown people by making them a known quantity.
  • Getting involved or volunteering with a business or organization that interests you.
