Networking: F2F and Online

Today's trio of links offers suggestions for networking.

http://blog.brazencareerist.com/2012/10/15/how-to-network-your-way-into-a-job-without-looking-desperate/ - A short story from a prospective employer's perspective, with comments on what worked, why the contact was so gracious, graceful, and effective.

http://www.youtern.com/thesavvyintern/index.php/2012/10/16/college-students-6-reasons-you-need-linkedin-now/ - Reasons why you need to use LinkedIn, and to some extent tips on how you can use it well. You can search my blog for additional posts on how to use LinkedIn; go to the upper left corner and type "LinkedIn" into the search box to see past posts.

http://careerenlightenment.com/personal_branding/how-i-started-getting-unsolicited-job-offers - The writer claims to have gotten unsolicited job offers; need I say more? It's not just "sit back and do nothing"; getting this to happen takes work. But according to NACE (The National Association of Colleges and Employers), "Unemployment Rate for New College Graduates Continues to Drop" (http://www.naceweb.org/s10102012/job-market-new-graduates/). Make sure you're getting your piece of the pie!
