If you have ever wondered how is it possible that everyone finds a job through a friend or someone they know, wonder no more: it is not magic but networking. You might have heard about the theory of the six degrees of separation that links with the essence of networking. The theory sustains that two people on Earth are separated by no more than six people, meaning that you can reach anyone through a chain of acquaintances of a maximum of six intermediates.
Networking is perfect for you to explore new horizons, possibilities, and ways of securing a new job. Read ahead and find the way to find your dream job through the people you already know or the means you already have. Everything you need to get a job is most probably at hand’s reach.
Building a network and profiting from is a long process that requires care, patience, and perseverance. Face it as a side task of your everyday life rather than a priority task to “fulfil” as soon as possible or you may end up frustrated. Focus on your race, don’t rush, do your best and enjoy the process. If you don’t make it to the end of the race at least, you’ll have covered a good part of it! There is nothing to lose from trying, more like the opposite: not ending up with a job doesn’t mean that you didn’t gain many valuable skills and contacts along the way.
