Cube Rules – 18 places to find a job

By Scot Herrick | Job Search

Where do career experts think the right places are to find a job?

You can find out with this excellent round-up of responses (including mine) over at Career Waymark.

Since we were all asked to contribute separately, it’s interesting to see the responses once all put together.

When you take a look at the responses, count up how many say “your network,” LinkedIn, and specialized job boards. Those were my answers, by the way.

Don’t underestimate the power of your business network in order to help you find a new job. And if you don’t have a business network, start developing one.

You may not need it today, but events can bring about swift change in your employment prospects. There are people in my business network that had perfectly good and stable jobs that are now out searching for or found a new one because of these types of events.

If you’ve built up your business network, you’ll have resources to help you in your time of need as you have helped others.

The time to start is now.

  • Thanks for the mention and for contributing to the article Scot.

    Agree with your points above. Even if you don’t ‘need’ a network now, start developing one and give value wherever possible. Then in the future if you do need help, you can potentially approach the network you have developed.
