Approximately 70% of all jobs are found through networking! Most career counseling professionals estimate that at least 50% of the jobs that are filled are never advertised; so how do people find out about these opportunities? Current employees will often tell their networking associates when a position is opening and/or help those associates get interviews. With this in mind, you can see how valuable this step is in your job search.
