One Way Solutions

The only way to find a new job is networking.

The only way a student can find a job is through internships.

No one gets jobs by applying to online posts.

None of these statements is true.  People find jobs in all sorts of ways, and no two job searches are the same.  I’ve had clients land great jobs applying to online posts, and others get nowhere even though they did everything right in networking.  The key to a good job search is to have a balanced approach.  Just as a manufacturer tries to use different marketing channels, a job seeker should try to use different methods to get in front of employers.  Yes, networking is still #1 way to find a job, but it’s not the only way.

Beware of one way solutions.  They’re usually the wrong way to go.
