Most people misunderstand how to use networking to get a job. They think of sipping Champagne and schmoozing people at a function. Or they ask their contacts if they know anyone who needs someone like them.
Neither of these approaches works well.
Instead, in Episode 2 of the Managing your Career in the Corona Virus Season, Catherine will outline how to use Job Search Networking to pick up a job, especially in a time of crisis.
This is a fantastic but very strict and specific approach so Catherine takes it slowly. This episode talks you through how to conduct your meeting with your Primary Contacts – those people whom you know and whom you first meet to help you along the journey to your job. She will cover the approach to Secondary Contacts in the following episode, so stay tuned!
