You’ve probably heard the old career advice saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” In many ways, it’s true that the people you know (and the new people you get to know) can be a great source of opportunity in your job search. And this is even if you’re looking for jobs that let you work from home.
Building a robust network takes effort, but it may be the best thing you’ll ever do for your career. Forming relationships with a variety of people expand possibilities by exposing you to new ideas and opportunities. It’s estimated that 70% to 85% of jobs are filled through networking.
So what are the most effective ways to network while you're job searching? Is LinkedIn the only tool you can use? How can you utilize friends and family in your job search?
Learn from a FlexJobs Career Coach who will guide you through the simple networking steps you can take to move your job search forward. And of course, join the FlexJobs LinkedIn Group for networking opportunities, to connect with other FlexJobs members, and to learn more ways to help your job search!
