When it comes to securing your next job title, you cannot rely completely on your education, experience and skill set to win over the hiring manager and land you the position. There is often too much competition.
To overcome this challenge, I always encourage job seekers to join networking groups and professional associations to align with industry leaders and hiring managers. Whether you are searching for your next job in the finance world, or something in the operations space, what sets many professional job seekers apart from the rest is corporate relationships and industry involvement – all possible to gain through valuable networking.
