Career Coach Advises Networking

21 Jun

In a U.S. News & World Report article posted to Yahoo! News yesterday, career coach Miriam Salpeter says effective company and industry research and networking can be crucial to successful job-searching.

Rather than respond to job listings, Salpeter advises spending time identifying and reaching out to employees of companies where you’d like to work, “moving online relationships to in-person” to “learn all you can and share information about yourself.”

This is exactly the point of Down4Lunch, to help forge meaningful, lasting, and mutually-beneficial relationships among professionals that can lead to new business and career opportunities. We’re happy to see accomplished career counselors endorsing the purposes for which Down4Lunch was created.
