Why do WE need to feel connected??

I read once in a National Geographic magazine that as we humans evolved early on if we didn't forge a connection with others we would have died. True story.

Banding together into groups and family units helped ensure we could weather the ups and downs of sickness, finding food, building shelter, and more.

Ultimately, we leaned on one and other to ensure our survival. It's like in that Pixar movie The Croods (see image). If you haven't watched it, WATCH it with your kids or by yourself...I won't judge.

Today we don't have to fend off predators or hunt for food, but the need to connect continues to live on in us.

Being better connected to others means you will be stronger, happier, and ultimately more resilient to weather the ups and downs that life inevitably throws our way.

Check out some ways you can better connect with others!

Don't be THAT person!

When you find someone that you want to connect with professionally here on Jobcase or on other social platforms make sure to have a profile picture uploaded to your account.

Why?

Well because NO one likes to connect with an individual if they can’t see their face.

Not sure which pic to use? Learn more about this and how to pick out the perfect profile picture. You'll get connected in NO time!

Back on the hunt again in the most challenging job market ever!

I find myself in the same position as many other hard-working professionals throughout the country who have recently been laid-off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the show must go on! If anyone has any opportunities that align with my background in either the Philadelphia or New York area, please feel free to reach out to me. I am ready to embark on my next endeavor!

To all of my friends/connections that are finding themselves in the same boat- I would love to help each other out in any way that we can, whether it be by introducing you to any connections that I may have, or just simply brainstorming ways to find new opportunities. I look forward to hearing from you! #connections #helpingeachother #opportunity #newopportunities #hiring #advice #jobcasedailychallenge #customerservice #hiringevent

Keith What is s skilled based resume never heard of that. Seems like a lot of extra work and do the employers even look at a two page resume? You would be surprised how well networking really works when you are looking for a job. Sometimes it is not how much you know or how much experience you have it is someone you know that might put in a good word to the company on your behalf.

No. I have not been "EMPLOYED" since 1995. I do believe I could be considered "UNEMPLOYABLE." I do have specific skill sets, i.e., Marine Industries. And I would consider training in most related industries, but, I have certain "DISABILITIES," age notwithstanding. Thank you for your time, Donald Hoppe.

#GetConnected Today and Boost Your Hiring Potential!

Create long-term relationships with mutual benefits! Here are some reasons why cultivating #connections and networking should be an essential aspect if you truly want to build your career:

  • When you stand out in both your expertise and the services you offer, it creates room for partnership which in turn builds a career.

  • When people start noticing you, it opens the door for newer opportunities.

  • Even the simplest interaction with one person can transform a year-long research work and result in a breakthrough.

  • The contacts you keep are largely attributed to your growth. They largely influence growth in your status and pave the way for better opportunities in your career.

Your connections are powerful!
