  • Networking

    In all other countries except the United States, networking is the primary means of finding a new job. Word of mouth. If people hear about a potential job, they tell their friends, relatives, even other co-workers to try to help them move ahead in the business world. We in the U.S are quite a bit behind in that idea and most people would rather not bother anyone with their job search. WRONG! You must tell everyone you know and everyone you meet that you are in job search. Not in a pushy, desperate kind of way, but in a quiet, networking kind of way. Let ILostMyJob.com help guide you through the world of networking.
