A personal introduction inside an organization is a huge advantage to someone who wants to change careers or begin a new one. In fact, referrals are the number-one source companies use to find outside hires, and over 70 percent of people find jobs through leads from others, according to LinkedIn.
Access to the right people and companies is vital for a successful career change, especially as the marketplace becomes more challenging. A few moments spent connecting people in your network is a powerful act of kindness.
