Asked by Tanya on March 16, 2017

I feel like my networking and “informational interviews” are just creating more work without accomplishing anything. What am I doing wrong?

Answered by Ashlyn, Hiring Expert at Worthington Industries, on March 20, 2017

I would suggest taking a step back and evaluating the ways in which you are networking. Are the events and or people that you're talking to related to the field in which you'd like to find a position? Do you have specific questions that you'd like to get answered when attending the events or interviews?  If you feel like you're wasting your time you probably aren't networking in the right places. I would consider researching some other options and going into the events with questions/suggestions/ideas that you can share to get the ball rolling and accomplish what you'd like.
