Network building & job search

Networking is one of the most valuable career development skills you can have, especially since an estimated 80% of all jobs are filled through networking — and many open positions are not advertised. So it is well worth your time to develop a wide-ranging network of professional contacts. Your contacts can help you explore your calling, get leads on jobs and internships, and get hired. Don’t underestimate the importance of a strong network!
