Employers say, “We can’t hire you unless we know you.”

It’s really about meeting people. In the case of professional networking or networking to obtain employment, you want to meet people who have the power to give you a job. The best part…they want to meet you too, because they want to hire you. People hire people they know, like, and trust, and networking is how that can happen. Even in this digital world, personal connections are still extremely powerful. And now congratulations! You’ve impressed the recruiter with your skills and experiences. They believe you can do the work, now they want to meet you in an interview to see if you’ll be a positive and productive addition to their team, department, and company.

It’s the interview that clinches the offer.
