Contemporary Methods of Networking – Targeted Networking

July 1, 2018  

Contemporary network is essentially networking with a purpose. Networking is a very effective job search method. However, to make your networking more effective, you need to have a focus. Targeted networking involves thoroughly researching your target market (companies, industries) and developing a list of key individuals, preferably decision-makers that you know are hiring. From there, you want to use your resources (contacts, association lists, industry lists and company websites) to identify these people and find ways to reach them.

Having a contact list of influential people in your target market is critical. You want these people to be aware of your availability.
