Agree or disagree, but finding a job after college is really more about networking with the right people than applying for countless jobs.

Follow up:

When you consider that most jobs are not even advertised, the value of networking becomes evident. In fact, Lou Adler, author of Performance-based Hiring, suggests that job-seekers apply a 20/20/60 approach:

  • 20% of job search time responding job postings through a backdoor (via referrals) instead of the front door (applying through a form or sending in a resume).
  • 20% enhancing your resume and LinkedIn profile for findability and readbility.
  • 60% networking the hidden market for jobs.
