Many job openings are filled through word-of-mouth or networking. Your goal is to create the widest network possible in order to increase the number of jobs you hear about.
Networking is simply developing a broad list of contacts through social, business and volunteer functions. People in your network may be able to give you job leads, offer you career advice, provide inside information on a company, and introduce you to others that can expand your network.
The important thing to remember about networking is that you are attempting to create a relationship and acquire career, company or industry information. You are NOT asking for a job directly.

Start building your network with present co-workers, former co-workers, student peers, family, friends and even neighbors. Use the IUM database to connect with IUM alumni and seek their mentoring. Attend networking events and seminars offered by the Career Services Office.

If you need more information on the traditional and social media networking strategy, please refer to the IUM Career Development Guide (online on ATOM, on IUM Alumni community Careers: Documentations, or available at the Office of Career Services), where you will find the detailed process.

If social media have been changing ways of doing business, they have also created amazing opportunities to better job hunt, if made appropriately. Online media as LinkedIn, Xing, Smallworld, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and specific blogs have now taken a large place in the job hunting strategy.
In expanding dramatically the personal and professional networks, while enabling a thorough and precise classification of each contact, they have emphasized the importance of personal branding as well as the necessity to set up a clear “online” branding strategy.
Quality of network is a key but the quantity is also fundamental to use social media in the most efficient way:
  • The more contacts you have on LinkedIn and Xing, the easier it is to find you and find opportunities
  • To be proactive and get jobs on Twitter you need to already have hundreds or thousands of followers.
Having a social media strategy is now crucial for international job seekers, but do not forget traditional job search and continue to respond to corporate postings, attend job fairs and so forth.
