Friends’ Endorsement and Networking Sunday, 19 November 2006

Posted by dragonzlad in Uncategorized.

My job hunting seems to have improved somewhat of late. A friend of mine recently strongly recommended me to his boss. Although the issue of experience (lack of it actually) did crop up, my friend put up a strong argument for me and his boss agreed to meet me for a chat. Another friend, T, also recommended me to her friend in a IT company. Both of them have given me really positive feedback like some of my other mates. Everyone felt that I will certainly do well in the private sector. I remember once when we had to give anonymous feedback to one another on paper, T gave me such compliments that I felt “high” and confident that I could find a job easily. Of course, reality is that recruiters will not see that side of me, unlike my mates who have worked with me. It has gotten to the point that I don’t bother with Saturday’s Recruit papers by Straits Times anymore. It seems networking and getting my name out through personal endorsement worked far better than cold calling.
