Networking has become more challenging and yet exponentially easier at the same time. We hear about networking all the time, but what is it and how do you do it? It is a crucial skill to master whatever profession you are in.

With 80% of job landings not announced in the open market, networking is essential in uncovering the hidden market.  It is a "must have" skill considering that the average person will have eight to 12 job changes in their lifetime.

Alex Freund, the Landing Expert, will present “Networking for the Job Search” on Wednesday, April 20th, from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library.

During the session you will learn:

  • Identify where and how to network in today's world
  • Learn why a Level 2 LinkedIn connection is more valuable than a 1st level connection
  • Learn how to ask for a networking meeting
  • Identify the three critical factors in the networking proposition
  • Eliminate your networking jitters
