The power of networking – an quick update

 

network-358063_640Back at the end of last summer, I blogged about a philosophy student who networked his way to work experience with The Scotsman.

Now for the latest update:

‘The Scotsman was very productive, I’ve since been back another two times, and will be returning in September, helping them out on a weekly basis with the Edinburgh Evening News Sport section which should be fantastic’

….further proof of just how far networking, following leads, persistence and responding positively (plus doing a good job of course!) can get you, especially in media-related career areas. 

Take a look at our resources on making the most of networking online via social media and in person, for your job/experience search, and research into different career areas.

Don’t wait for the opportunity to come to you – go out and make it happen!
