Networking Your Way into a New Job – Bill Kasko – Frontline Source Group, Inc.
Hi, I’m Bill Kasko, president and CEO of Frontline Source Group. Over the last few months, Frontline Source Group has joined forces with local churches to connect people and to provide assistance and direction in finding a job. The response has been so incredible, that we wanted to share just a few tips to you, too!
Networking is the easiest way to make professional connections. By reaching out to your community, family, and friends, you might know someone who knows someone who might be hiring. By joining forces with networking groups, like churches, community activities, etc. you may find your connection to a great job. Everyone should know who you are and what you do.
If you are not registered with staffing agencies, make it your goal to do so. Many jobs never even make it onto job boards before they are filled. Increase your odds and meet new staffing professionals. Keep an open mind on the title, pay, location – this could be your way in the door of a great company.
Update your resume with relevant information. If you aren’t up to date, you could be missing out on potential connections too. If you need help with your resume, reach out to the Resume Corporation. www.theresumecorporation.com is where you need to go to get started perfecting your resume to pass out in all of your networking endeavors.
Networking doesn’t stop in person… you can do it online too. If you aren’t already, set up professional profiles in Facebook.com, jobertalk.com, linkedin.com – these are all great places to make new professional connections. Jobs sometimes can be posted here too, so keep these profiles up to date.
If you have interest in having our team come and talk with your community group, we would love to help! Forward any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
