Seeking a new job takes perseverance – it can be tough to remain focused and positive when met with the uncertainties or pressures ahead. It can feel like you're doing all the right things –searching the job boards, sending out resumes, filling out applications and so on – but still not getting the hits or the offers you're hoping for. That's why it's essential to connect with other job seekers who share your frustrations and can empathize with your struggle.
Coming to PONG meetings can give you the weekly boost of energy you need in order to keep up your search – and can offer strategies and recommendations you may not yet have considered. Since many jobs are not advertised, networking can open up the hidden job market. It is key to develop friendly connections with people who can tip you off to job openings or perhaps even introduce you to a hiring manager. There is truth in, "It's not what you know, but who you know."
