It’s a fact: More people land jobs through active networking—upwards of 85 percent—than by any other job search method. Expand your network with other job seekers (everybody knows somebody), find out who is hiring and about jobs that may never be advertised, share successful strategies and contact names, and practice your “elevator speech”—a brief two-minute verbal resume about positions desired and target employers—and let us help you. Free. No need to RSVP.
