Networking to find your next Job Opportunity in Naperville, IL

Most job opportunities are from personal contacts

It is ok to use networking sites such as Facebook to help you find your next employment opportunity. Remember that employers are also looking at these sites to see if there are any "warning signs". The time to start creating your online social network is right now, not at the beginning of your employment search.

My favorite networking site is LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a professional networking site that allows you to keep track of all your co-workers, customers, and friends on one site. I keep my LinkedIn profile completely professional. LinkedIn also provides a job board for helping the community find qualified people.

For those in Naperville, there is the LinkedIn Greater Naperville Networking Group which you can join that provides opportunities to connect with other Naperville professionals.

There are other professional networking groups such as Naymz and Plaxo, and of course, the more social networks like Facebook and MySpace. As these have become very popular, they have also become a source of information for employers, so be careful what you post to these sites.

When searching for a job, don't limit yourself to online searches. Naperville has many communities to help folks find work.

Naperville Community Career Center is partially funded by Naperville township and is operated by the Naperville Chamber of Commerce.

The center has work stations to help job seekers find their next employment opportunities.

The career center is located at:
