Network to Get a Government Job Guide

Network to Get a Government Job Guide

Networking to find a job is not only recommended – it is critical. It is well noted by experts that most people find their job through referrals and personal contacts. Vanderbilt University’s Career Center cited that 80% of seniors find jobs and internships through their network, while 20% find them through recruiters or job search engines.

Sometimes the government workplace seems like a “good ol’ boys club.” If you’ve applied to job after job that you are well qualified for, but are still turned down, maybe you need a new strategy. Work your contacts (and their contacts!)
