Job Search & Networking

Searching for a job is a job in itself! It requires initiative and the use of targeted strategies especially in a tight job market. Networking is a critical aspect in the process that must begin early on. Research shows that most jobs are found through networking. It’s not only about what you know but who you know.

Finding the right job requires time to strategize and prepare for an effective job search. We recommend using a variety of resources and meeting with a Career Coach to discuss a job search plan tailored to meet your goals.
