SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- We all know the many benefits of networking -- from expanding our network to improving our chances of landing that new position -- but it remains the thing we spend the least amount of time doing in our job searches. 

Just the word "networking" can conjure up a variety of reactions on par with those associated with "castor oil." Despite the fact that 80% of jobs are landed through networking or that the majority of jobs aren't posted, we still refuse to network. If you would like to increase your confidence, this workshop is perfect for you.

Alex Freund, "The Landing Expert", tackles job search networking head-on with the Career Networking Group at the Scotch Plains Public Library on Monday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m. This provocative workshop is designed to step up your game and empower you to network anytime, anywhere, with anyone.
