If you're a recent college graduate you might be focused on filling out job applications, but Alaina G. Levine reminds you not to neglect good old-fashioned networking. She explains why this technique might just be what lands you your dream job(s). Alaina G. Levine is a prolific speaker, writer, consultant and teacher.
"Of all the tools in your job-search toolbox, networking should be at the very top of your to-do list," says Levine, author of Networking for Nerds: Find, Access and Land Hidden Game-Changing Career Opportunities Everywhere (www.alainalevine.com). "Networking is so critically important because it gives you access to jobs and other career-advancing opportunities that are not always advertised. As many as 90 percent of jobs are 'hidden' and are obtained solely through networking." Levine explains that networking makes you known to decision-makers who, once they recognize your value, can engage you as an employee. Not only will these individuals think of you first for an opening on their team; they may even create a job specifically for you.
