So Job-seeker, how many people do you know?

According to one of the most networked people I know (hint, his first name is Scott), the average person knows about 250 people.

I wonder how many people the average job-seeker networks with on a weekly basis? Job hunting is almost a full-time job itself, but I wonder if we actually spend too much of our time on fruitless search activities, and too little time on cultivating our network.

Randall S. Hansen, Ph.D. of offers up some good networking advice.

The Steps to Successful Networking:
  1. Develop a firm grasp of job search basics.
  2. Conduct a self-assessment.
  3. Prepare a strong resume.
  4. Decide how to organize your network.
  5. Communicate with your network.

Sounds easy, right? Click here to read entire article.
