Networking Creates Strong Results (We Knew This!)

From Execunet’s newsletter:

ExecuNet.com reported in a survey that “networking generates nearly twice as many interviews at the executive level than any other activity.” The survey included 1,483 professionals with an average salary of $193,000.

The top three sources for interviews were:

1. Networking contacts (46%);
2. Internet job listings (24%);
3. Unsolicited contact from a recruiter (5%).

ExecuNet reports that in a “separate survey of 181 search firms”, it was found that “63% of all executive job openings were filled with a candidate that was sourced through networking.”
