As all of us has been informed ad nauseum since we ever had to consider the remote possibility of a job search – networking is everything when it comes to finding a job.
And now, in the age of the internet and an economic downturn, we hear once again how important Networking is, even moreso now.
I'm arguing with none of these points. In fact, I fully agree Networking is important in your career, and gets more and more important as your career goes on. I also agree it's even more important now. But I want to add one more thing.
Networking is also cheaper. Today, people are going to pay even more attention to that. More, I think it's become even cheaper because of changes in the job search.
