Not an old cliché but a fact when it comes to maximizing your hiring potential for a dream career job opportunity.
This is often the "road less traveled" for active job seekers unfortunately but achieving a strong career network community doesn't have to be such a monumental task.
You may have noticed that we have a new feature here in the Jobcase community - connections. So, what are they?
Think of connections as a handshake 🤝 They're are a great way to extend a "hello" to current/past coworkers, employers, friends, and other community members. Not sure who to connect with? We make it easy to find people you may know on Jobcase.
You can also connect with anyone in the Jobcase community who you think is interesting, funny, cool, inspirational, etc. Why is this important for your job search and career development? Well...
Reviving old connections and meeting new people builds up your personal network.
Jobcase connections can help accelerate your job search and land you a job faster.
So get out there and CONNECT with others! Simply head to their profile and click the “connect” button under their bio. Let me know if you have any questions!
Did you know that upwards of 80% of the available jobs are filled through networking connections.
Your family, friends, and previous co-workers/managers can ultimately be the defining factor that can propel you to your next career job opportunity.
Feel free to Connect right back with us on this post if you have any questions about the new job leads so we can assist you through the hiring process.
I graduated this year with my degree in journalism. I really love doing it, and spent a couple years helping at the school paper. However, now that I’m out in the real world, I don’t know what to do! I think I used up all the connections I already had and nothing came of it. Now I’m not sure where to go to get myself a job in this field. Do I ask the people I know to connect me with other people they might know? That seems a little out there. Any help you can give will be so much appreciated!
Don't know where to start building your professional network? Unsure on how to connect with strangers. Start instead with the people you know or even better start with the people you used to be friends with, your dormant connections. This video talks about how to network and build your connections when you're not really good at it.
