Utilising contacts to find vacancies is a very common way to secure employment. You might be thinking, "I don't have anyone in my network", but look at the list below:
- friends of friends
- previous students from your course
- leisure interests
- voluntary work
- and previous employers.
Think about where you might have potential contacts for future work experience, work shadowing or job opportunities
