Are you dismissing the value of contacts at networking events?

Job Search Networking Meetings and Events

Don't underestimate the power of the interactions and contacts you make at job search networking events, even when there possible connection to you seems fairly far fetched.

Harry Urschel, writing as a guest blogger on the Career Rocketeer Blog, one of our featured job search blog feeds, describes in a blog titled "What good does this contact do for me?", a case study for how an electrical engineer might find an accountant a valuable contact. At first blush this idea seems ridiculous, but upon digging deeper, you begin to see the value of the interaction, questions, and help that might come from this networking event connection.
