Reach out to people from your industry

Platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter can be used to find people in your field or industry you want to work for. Look at their profile for anything similar that you can connect with, such as similar goals or interests.

Then reach out. Ask if you can have a bit of their time to ask some questions. If they agree, ensure to have well-prepared questions. The purpose is to gather information and make a connection, not to pitch yourself.

The way we search for jobs has changed over the last few years. According to research, 85% of jobs are filled through networking, not through looking for postings and applying directly.

Most organization will fill positions internally with people they are familiar with and trust, rather than taking a greater risk with an outsider.

The sooner you start networking, the more potential results will come your way. Maintain your connections by looking for opportunities to support the people in your network.

Look for opportunities to do something for your connection.
