Job Hunting Advice from My Mentor @ GottaMentor

The economy sucks.  Not news.  But are you prepared to be a job hunter in 2009?  According to GottaMentor.com, having an established network in 2009 is the best way to job hunt.  Here are the highlights from the blog my Mentor sent me, but you should check it out for the full article.  Let me know in the comments if you agree, disagree or have similar experiences with network success.

1. Develop a short list of people who can potentially help.

2. Make smart requests that are easy for them to respond with “yes.”

3. Make it easy for them to help you.

There’s a lot of information in this post, for both new professionals and seasoned pros.  If you’re not already on GottaMentor, nows a good time to start networking as a mentor or mentee.
