Transition Advice
Thank you to all the U.S. military veterans who have served our country and fought for our freedom.

Networking and Your Job Search

It is estimated that at least 80% of jobs are found through networking. The old adage, "It's not what you know, but who you know," holds true in the job search. Of course, your skills and experience are what will ultimately land you the job, but your networking efforts will open the doors to opportunities.

It is important to include both formal and informal networking in your job search process. Formal networking is taking a direct approach in asking for job leads and referrals, and attending professional networking events such as association meetings, industry conferences, or business social events.

Informal networking can occur at a family gathering, holiday party, or community event, where it is acceptable to casually mention that you are seeking employment. Casual acquaintances and conversations can often lead to unexpected job opportunities, so don't overlook the power of informal networking. Read this article for some guidelines to follow for effective networking.

Search out and connect with fellow veterans for support with your job search. They've been through the transition and are often very willing to help out a fellow service member. Find them through social media sites such as, and through veteran websites, military associations, and fellow military colleagues. Learn more from this article on connecting with fellow veterans.

Social media is a powerful networking tool for a job seeker. It allows you to build a boundless network right from your computer -- connecting to colleagues, recruiters, experts and influencers in your industry to help get your foot in the door of opportunities. For some quick tips on building your social media network check out A Targeted Approach to Using Social Media.
