What is Networking?

Networking involves using the vast numbers of people that you know -- your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, customers, vendors, associates, etc. -- as information sources for job leads.

The more people in your network, and the more people each person in your network knows, the greater number of job leads.


Networking Opportunities

  • Create an online presence on social media websites like LinkedIn.
  • Attend local Chamber networking events.


Things to Consider:

It used to be that employers only had resumes and and interviews to go by when making hiring decisions. That changed with the Internet and social networking.

Below are a few links to help you manage your online reputation.
