Ep #104: Networking for Job Seekers

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | Networking for Job Seekers

What comes to mind when you think about networking? Do you see it as an exciting opportunity to connect with others and share your skills and aspirations about your career? Or is it something you find so cringy that you could never imagine doing it?


Whether you’re currently looking for a job in the short term or seeking greater professional connections over the long term, networking is a great tool to have in your arsenal. From brushing up your CV and searching online forums to sending out cold email applications, there are lots of different steps you can take in the process of looking for new opportunities. However, among all the available steps, the candidates who typically find the best-aligned jobs are the ones who go through the networking process.


Tune in this week to discover why networking is not only a critical part of finding a new job but also essential for your overall professional development. If networking is something you feel resistant to, you’ll hear how to radically overhaul and rethink networking, and I’m also offering five strategies you can begin implementing in the networking process.
