The Power of Networking & Recommendations

You may have heard this before when it comes to getting a new job; it isn’t what you know but who you know. I can personally attest to that, my very first job, and one of my previous jobs I received a personal recommendation for. And I have also given recommendations to quite a few of my friends and colleagues for various positions. 

Personal recommendations and networking are favored among organizations to fill open positions. In fact, according to the US Bureau of Labor statics, 70% of all jobs are found through networking. Some career experts report that statistics to be closer to 80 or 85%. Noted below are just a few networking statistics identified earlier this year by 42Review.com.

  • 85% of positions are filled by networking
  • 70% of people found a job through connections in a company
  • 61% of professionals agree there are opportunities to be found through regular communication and networking
  • 35% of LinkedIn users got job offers from casual communication on the platform
