Networking is as important for the gainfully employed as for the active job-seeker, according to Liz Young, a recruiter for Dallas staffing agency Creative Circle.
Young, whose agency specializes in advertising and creative talent, spoke to participants at IABC Fort Worth’s sold-out Speed Networking event on Feb. 28 at Joe T’s.
With the economy recovering and businesses trying to figure out their next moves, “It’s always a good idea to have lots of good contacts in industries and organizations you’d like to work,” Young said. Even if you may not be actively looking for your next opportunity, she said, “Join as many networking groups you can to build a good community and referral base you could tap – just in case.”
Young shared more basic job-search guidelines:
