Networking with Employers

The number of jobs advertised in newspapers and websites is nothing compared to the number of jobs that are never advertised. It is estimated that between 70% and 80% of the jobs are not published. So who gets these jobs? Simple. The people who know the importance of networking and network actively. This means joining professional networks such as LinkedIn and actually going out and talking to would-be employers.

Need some help honing your networking skills? Here at Goodwill Career Centre, we offer networking sessions every Monday, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM where participants can engage and connect with potential employers.

Let us help you grow your network and find your dream job!
