Creative Ways to Network and Job Search

Networking has become an important part of job searching, but  what are some ways can you creatively do that?  Here are at least five, in no particular order.

1. Attend job fairs in your area, or the city/town you plan to move to someday.

2. Use social media to get the word out about your job hunt.

3. Write articles on a specific topic for a newspaper, magazine, or even online publication, and get published.

4. Volunteer at a non-profit organization, for a cause your care about. 

5. Go back to school, if needed.

Those are just five ways to get yourself in the running for the job you've always wanted.  What are other ways you can build your network in hopes of landing the perfect position?  Send those responses via e-mail at, send comments at, or send a direct message via Twitter at
