Can anyone tell me if networking actually works in finding a job? I know no one that would be of help. I have always found my jobs on my own by answering ads, or going into the business. I don't know anyone who has found a job through networking. So I wonder if it is as effective as it is touted.
Caught of Guard:
My dream career is to become a pediatrician and I am currently taking pre med classes. However, my reality is far from it. You see have been working at retail store since I was 16 years old helping my family. A few days, ago, my friend took me to a networking event filled with students that have a background in medicine. I felt so out of place and to make matters worse one of the faculty members who is in charge of the event made a rude comment saying I was not willing to advance myself because of retail background. Really!!!! I was so angry and beyond hurt. How do I use my retail experience to my advantage to network into the medical field?
Hi everyone, Like many others, my position was recently eliminated. I am a highly experienced Manager with over 20 years experience. I have procurement and analysis experience, extensive knowledge of the fashion industry for over 12 years, as well as purchasing experience and Executive Assistant experience. I am looking for a new role to challenge me. Thank you in advance for any connections, advice, or opportunities you can offer. Best of luck to everyone!
I am looking for a job in Human Resources preferably in Benefits. I have a Masters Degree in Management focusing on HR and have a few years, part-time, project based HR experience. I would like to network with any HR professionals, Recruiters, or Hiring Manager based in the Seattle area on here. I recognize there might not be any openings in HR right now with the companies these individuals represent. However by connecting with other HR professionals, my goal is to be considered should such an opportunity come up.
Thank you Sincerely Jason Shaw
So after being unemployed for 2 months and reaching out to numerous recruiters, blasting out applications to everyone, and creating tailored resumes for every job I've applied to only to hear a no, I've decide that enough is enough and I'm going to have to blaze my own path. I was looking for a job in finance just to get something but wanted to transition into technology. Since there is no one that to provide any useable advice or wants you to pay them to be a mentor/career advice giver, I've given up going those normal routes. I'm going to continue to search for a job on my own, but I'm not going to depend on anyone helping me. While I'm doing that, I'm in the process of starting to learn what tech companies/start ups are looking for, starting with learning python. It will not be an easy road, but it beats sitting at home and miserable and not doing anything about the problem. You cannot depend on any of these job sites to really help you (not even LinkedIn) unless you want to pay loads of money for nothing. The other thing I see is a lot of these so called recruiters taking advantage of people in desperate situations during this time and either taking their money or offering jobs that will end up leaving them stuck or skillless. I see the value of having a head hunter, but in a pandemic, that seems like waste.
All this to say that I am blazing my own path. I have the intelligence and drive to learn what I need to learn and figure out what I need to learn. If anyone would like to help or provide any useful advice, I'm open to it. I'll even share my resume as I do still need to make a living. But for now, I've given up following the traditional "listicle" advice that's on every job site or search result on Google. It is time I do something about my situation even during a pandemic/race war. As an African American male, I have never been given any opportunity, despite having a bachelors degree in economics and on the path to finishing a master. I have had to fight for every opportunity when I was employed in finance. So why should I expect it to stop now? #unemployed #jobsearch #motivation #coronavirus #mentor #networking #finance #technology #workfromhome #unemployment

NEED IT PM WORK
Both my husband and I are out of work. I'm an IT professional (IT Project Manager) but am struggling to land employment. I've applied for over 200 jobs - both IT & Non-IT roles even broadened outside my area considering all usable transferable skills/experience as possible. I've undergone 2 professional resume overhauls and met with career coach! Of all the jobs I've applied to - I've literally been contacted by 3 employers to interview! Need help! Anyone know of any IT companies searching for IT staff? #networking
