Networking is a popular way that job seekers hear about and find job openings. You can use your network as one of your job search strategies since letting your connections know you are searching will absolutely help you.
I highly recommend LinkedIn! Your connections may be able to help find a job quicker. So, connect with everyone you know and endorse or recommend their services and products. Then, they will reciprocate making your profile stand out. Be sure to include keywords from your resume throughout your profile and join groups within LinkedIn.
If you offer a specialized service, then join groups that use your services or may be looking for someone just like you. The competition will be less and interacting and sharing your experiences will also increase your chances of being noticed. Remember, use your network because chances are, they can help you and put you in touch with someone who can.
