Reach Out to People In Your Network - Deepstash

Reach Out to People In Your Network

Discussions are a natural part of the job-hunting process, but you want to segment the people you engage with into two categories:

  • Thought Partners: People who can weigh in on your thinking and path forward (mentors, alumni networks, former managers and colleagues, etc.)
  • Opportunity Sourcers: People who can help you identify open opportunities.

The best people to reach out to for advice are people you a) admire, b) have demonstrated skills and personal attributes you would like to gain, or c) are doing what you want (or think you want) to be doing.
