It’s not what you know, it’s who you know! That maxim is true--to an extent. While your phony diplomas and fake transcripts are important documents in the job hunt, nothing helps your career along like having an established social network. In this blog post, the ND Center wants to demystify this important job requirement.
Networking is using and discovering connections between people. It demands that you move beyond your immediate social network and tap into other people’s networks. This involves approaching people in both formal and informal settings, such as at a conference or presentation, or even at a family party. Networking can allow a person to explore a field of interest, as well as lead to job opportunities. Informational discussions with professionals can also help an individual narrow an area of interest and choose a career path. Furthermore, job searchers can use networking to receive information about job openings, make contacts, get referrals, and better their interviewing skills.
An estimated 60-80% of jobs are found informally through networking with direct or indirect contacts such as friends, relatives, and alumni. Even though you may not have had the full college experience and are trying to get by on online fake degree certificates, you will still find unlimited potential in close social networks. During periods of economic difficulty, networking --along with a fake degree --is an essential way to improve one’s job search and increase the probability of finding a job.
