Networking

Many employers have enough applicants without advertising a position. They’ll often gravitate toward a person who’s been referred to them by a trusted contact, which is known as tapping into the hidden job market.

Through networking, you can boost your own professional contact list and increase your chance of securing a great position. Our 'improve your employability' section of the site has some top networking tips.
