Search Advice

Network in Philadelphia. Network Online.

  • Immediately identify associations and organizations related to your profession and begin attending as many events/meetings as you can.  Nothing can replace face to face networking.
  • Make sure that your LinkedIn profile is complete and that you have joined various LinkedIn groups associated with your profession.
  • Your online presence is vital in a job search, so make sure that your LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook are all sending a consistent professional message about who you are as a professional.
  • Ask for introductions!  Reach out directly to people you are connected to within organizations you are interested in, and ask if they are willing to introduce you.
  • Be reciprocal in your requests. Networking is not just about you, it is about relationships and helping each other make connections. Be interested in what others do and how you can help them.
