How to Find Employment Contacts - Meet Employers the Easy Way!

Face it, few people have contacts.  Even for the most developed, is a nuisance, but for those of us who are shy, as painful as the lips matches have a windy day.
 However, with the highest unemployment rate in decades and forecast to worsen this year, you can not afford not to make and maintain contacts in these days, says Brown Jodi Glickman, founder of Great on the Job, a firm that helps executives to improve their communication skills.  Whether you're looking for work or think about a plan of support, and salt relaciónate.  These techniques will almost pleasant.  Almost.
 In events: Get out
 Explore the scene. A large room full of strangers can be intimidating, be it a cocktail social at a conference of industry, a corporate retreat, or an event for networking.  Relieves stress to discover who the guests before the event.  Please ask the organizer to send you an email list of confirmed or reviewed the records when you arrive.  You can go into heat to find someone who already know, but be sure to go ahead and move before passing a long time.
 Take a companion. If possible, invite a colleague to go with you.  Ideally it should bring someone more extroverted than you, someone you meet people and to push you might promote a bit, says Peter Handal, CEO of Dale Carnegie & Associates, firm that provides corporate leadership training.
 Commonly arrives early. Do not prefer to walk in a room with five people in a 50?  Comes from the beginning so you can start a conversation rather than join in a challenge to progress, says Wendy Gelberg, author of "The Successful introverted" (The Successful Introvert).  Arrive early enough and you have a sentence to start the conversation: "So, I guess we are the first to arrive ..."  Not exactly material for the Algonquin Round Table, but it will be enough to get you out of trouble.
 One by one: Vincúlate not pray
 Keep in touch in good time. Do not be the guy who called just to let off steam about how much work sucks and how terrible it is the job market.  The technical term for a person is "tedious."  Call when you're looking for a new job, and it will be easier for you to return the call when you do it.
 A food program. Yes, this meal with your old co-worker also, even if it was fun.  (Especially if it was fun).  No matter who you talk more about your horrible ex-boss of your career.  Establishing contacts is not a constant series of mini interviews.  It is a gradual process to build confidence and to make people know (perhaps not to this ex-chief) what you do in those days.  Try to schedule a weekly meal.
 Shut your mouth for a minute. I repeat, you're building relationships, not being interviewed.  Ask questions to get your partner to talk about food itself.  Who does not love that?
 Give now, get then. Establish contacts sounds like flattery, because we see it as something to ask.  But it is actually a two-way street.  Help someone else, and you need a favor (or at least think of you) later.  "Few among us walk with jobs in their pockets, but we all have contacts and information that we share," Gelberg said.
 Online: Keep your friends close
 Build a network casual. Inscrição if you have not done so, a social service linkage as LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook.  "Because the interactions do not occur in real time, the pressure is much lower," Gelberg said.  These services allow you to stay in touch with people without the formalities and the hi-how-you email.  And they are often more casual contacts who will bring you to your next job.  But do not abuse the technology and the people angry.  Send requests for friends only to people you know and remind know where if you spent a long time.  A strong network of 50 people is better than having known 1000.
 Be present. Do you know someone who knows someone that might be useful in your career?  To ask that this mutual friend through a social link site.  Or browse the tab "People" (People) on LinkedIn to see if someone in your circle can connect with a specific person or company.
 Put people a day. Do a little boasting (online is easier, I promise) to increase your social profile link to update your "status" or even send a mass email.  Make people know, for example, speaking on a panel or attend a conference.
