NETWORKING & INTERVIEWING
Even with the growth of social networking, face-to-face contact still matter. Looking people in the eye, a firm handshake, a confident voice, and sincere tone all lead to a good first impression in both networking and interviewing. In such a competitive job market you want to make sure you set yourself apart, having a strong network and solid interviewing skills will help you do that.
It's important to be prepared, as you never know who you will meet. You should strive to connect with professionals in your field both in-person and online (be sure to develop a strong, positive online presence). Don't forget you can turn to your network for advice on interviewing, your industry, or growth opportunities.
