Statistics show that 70% of people find work based upon contacts that they did not know at the beginning of your job search. In-person networking becomes the catalyst for many people finding work. In other words, your “A” list of contacts will probably not be the source for finding work; it will be your “weak ties” that bring you the job you take.
On this show, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter speaks with Dave Opton, the founder and Chairman of Execunet, a networking organization that operates both offline and online, about the importance of in-person networking in your search.
