85% of jobs are filled by networking

2022-03-24 85% of jobs are filled by networking

The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics concludes that 85 percent of jobs are filled by networking.

My last four jobs were all found via some type of networking.

1. I worked with the distributor and networked with the manufacturing reps to get a job working directly with the manufacturer.
2. Someone in my network referred me to a recruiter in his network who referred me to a recruiter who placed me in my first job at the bank.
3. My friend put in a personal referral for me and sent my resume directly to the hiring manager.
4. Someone in my network invited me to a networking event (yes! just mix and mingle to meet folks) and I got spotted and recruited from that event.

It’s true. Jobs are found through networking.

Sometimes it’s not a direct connection but it’s still a connection through your network.

Chemere and I initially met through @CarolinaWomenInTech. Over the years, we got to know each other at various events. Fast forward and now we’re colleagues at #Microsoft.

Coincidence? I think not! #NetworkingWorks !
