There are career coaching services out there who advertise that they will teach you a powerful “secret” method for finding jobs. It’s a magical technique that will put you in touch with the vast majority of job openings, which never even get advertised. They’ll sweeten the deal by promising that this special technique will bypass the usual hiring gatekeepers and earn you a much warmer reception from senior executives than you’ll normally get.
This technique really exists. At the risk of giving away this valuable secret knowledge and earning the wrath of those who would sell it to you for thousands of dollars, I’m gonna give it up. It’s actually a common-sense technique that every job hunter can and should use. It combines networking and informational interviews.
Love George’s article and he is right, networking works when done properly. Check out the rest of his article at this link http://tinyurl.com/go9vy. Enjoy! – W.
