Career Calling

June 5, 2012

Networking Lightning

A client called me today to say that he landed a job.  He and his wife were sitting at a restaurant bar and struck up a conversation with another couple.  It turns out that one of my client’s new friends was in his industry.  She passed his resume along to her boss.  Two weeks later, he has a new job.

Was my client lucky?  Of course, luck matters.  However, he was also prepared.  He had his resume ready to send, and he impressed the employer during the interview.  Networking is like lighting:  You never know when it’s going to strike.  Be prepared when it does.
