Network or Die

"'If I have to network in order to get a job, I’ll end up homeless,' exclaimed one woman, only half joking, when she learned from an outplacement firm that about 80% of jobs are found through networking."

Sound like something you might say?

Thus begins an excellent, free, downloadable booklet Job Search Networking for Introverts, which can be found here: http://www.job-hunt.org/guides/Job-Hunt-job-networking-for-introverts.pdf.

Actually, it's a good primer for anyone, introvert or extrovert, since it breaks down both "big event networking" (like job fairs) and "one-on-one networking" (informational interviews, let's do lunch, chance encounters) into bite-sized, no-anxiety logical steps.
