Making the “Net Work” - The Importance of Networking during Job Search



According to CNBC, 70% of all jobs are NOT published outside of the organisation and as much as 80% of them are filled through personal and professional connections. Networking is a proactive approach to job search, aimed at generating information and advice through contacts that will ultimately assist you in identifying suitable roles. These include “hidden job opportunities” that aren’t advertised externally or briefed to recruitment consultants to fill.


How to start your network, record keeping, knowing when to call or write to people, telephone techniques, how to set up, prepare for and manage a networking meeting, as well as what to do after, are all aspects that can be covered in both our Group and 1:1 Outplacement & Career Transition programmes, tailored to meet the requirements of each participant and client.
