It’s rare to get a job by applying on a job board.
Studies show (and sorry, I don’t know which one but it's from 2019) that most people find jobs through networking. Get ready for this number - a whopping 80%! Don’t let that discourage you. Every application is a step in your journey; consider it a learning experience.
Make it a goal to connect with someone new every day, even if it’s just liking or commenting on a social media post. LinkedIn is the network of choice for a job seeker.
Covid update: Soon we can network in person. Get those business cards ready!
