5 Networking Tips to boost your job search

Whether you love it or hate it, the idea of putting yourself out there to solicit help is never an easy task. Networking does not have to feel like a sales pitch; Instead, consider networking as creating new relationships and gathering additional information to aide in your job search. With this mindset, you'll be networking your way into a job in no time. Here are 5 networking tips to help get you started!
  1. Join your regional UGA Alumni Association. With chapters in over a dozen cities and 3 continents, your UGA network can aide in your job search. To find a chapter near you, visit the UGA Alumni Association website.
  2. Update your LinkedIn profile and get noticed. LinkedIn has more than 3 million companies with company pages and 300+ million users. Updating your profile to reflect your brand is the first step in using LinkedIn to its fullest potential. Not sure how to get started? Check out page 10 our Social Media Guide to create a top notch profile.
  3. Ask for help. This seems like an obvious networking tool, but you'd be surprised by how few people reach out to their network for help. While you want to avoid asking for a job (instead ask for a reference), no one can help you if they don't know you need help. For some tips on beginning those conversations, check out this great article!
  4. Get organized. There is nothing worse than forgetting the name of the individual you had a wonderful conversation with at a previous networking event. Forgetting names is an easy thing to do, but don't let this minor screw up affect your network building. Get organized. Buy a journal to keep up with contacts or create an excel spreadsheet to keep your network organized. Make sure to include the name, company, brief conversation reminders and the networking event to stay organized for a flawless follow-up with your new contact. For more excel tips, check out this article!
  5. Do something different. You've been job searching for 3 months now. You've reached out to your network and your LinkedIn profile looks amazing, yet you are still unemployed. Do something different. The truth is that you need to expand your network. Volunteer with a local community organization, sign up to play softball with your neighborhood league, or reach out to a member on an interest-specific LinkedIn group. The point is to build relationships. Find other ways to build your network rather than merely maintaining your existing network.
