Debunking Networking Myths (Part III)

Friday, November 06, 2009

(Note: This is the final part in a three-part series on networking, excerpted from our networking e-book "Stop Job Searching Start Networking")


Myth #3:  You need to know tons of connected people to network.

You may be surprised with how big your network is once you expand your perspective.  In fact, you probably have more connections than you think.  Just consider a few of these:


□    Your friends
□    Your parents
□    Your parents’ friends
□    Your friends’ parents
□    Your neighbors
□    Your dentist
□    Your hairstylist
□    Your personal trainer
□    Your old colleagues
□    Your old professors

If there’s a company where you really want to work, make sure you start talking to anyone you know to find the connection.  It’s called six degrees of separation.  Sure, you may not know anyone at Google, but does anyone you know know someone who works there? 

Don’t forget your college career center – even if you graduated years ago.  At some schools, alumni organizations provide amazing resources and opportunities.  Also, don’t be shy about using LinkedIn or even Facebook to find contacts.
