To get an amazing job do you think connections are a must now a days???
Yeah, for sure. My friend Jason had a job waiting for him at his Uncles firm to gain experience. He started on a very good wage, well above the minimum. He now works with his dad as an electrician earning even more money.
Another one of my friends has relatives in Australia. Guess where he lives and works now.
I don't really have any useful connections so I've had to really work to be where I'm at. And I'm nowhere compared to them.
Thats how I feel, I have to work tripple hard than other people that come from well connected families to get a well paying job or a foot in the door. Its frustrating but I think we are stronger for it..
Connections and who you know, certainly helps. Unfortunately, (or fortunately depending on who you ask), this has always been the case. I agree, it can be frustrating. Having specialty skills helps out, also.
I think to get an amazing job your skills and experience is required
Absolutely Christi. There is an old adage that is very true today, they very wealthy build their network in order to build their networthy.
Especially with social media as a major driver, it more important now than ever before on no just making the connection but there is also an art to making the connections.
I think experience is the most important thing. If you have the experience, any company will try to hire you. Though, having a connection doesn't hurt either. Usually connection will only bring you one step ahead than others. To close the deal, you will need to prove yourself that you are worth it. I have worked for 2 different companies, all just by being persistent applying the job and I was hired because of my experience. I also think skills and education are important.

It seems the stats are frozen again, as I have not seen a change in mine in a good long while. Has anyone else noticed this too?
