Extreme Networking, Moving Beyond Job Search Groups…

Extreme Networking Opportunities

Greetings,

If you had no “job search groups” to go to where would you go to look for work? Where would you connect with folks that had jobs and knew of jobs or might know of jobs or might know of others that knew of jobs…? The key is to expand your connection base and meet people that know people and are aware of opportunities that are currently out of your reach. The objective is to get out and to connect with new people.

The Great Good Place: Cafes, Coffee Shops, Bookstores, Bars, Hair Salons, and Other Hangouts at the Heart of a Community, by Ray Oldenburg is very loosely responsible for the compilation below, a poignant book. E-mail your suggestions to MonteWashburn@gmail.com or submit to Monte Washburn’s Nonfiction Blog at: https://montewashburn.wordpress.com/

Good Hunting,

Monte
