A professional network is a "supportive system" of individuals for a mutually beneficial purpose. The benefits of the relationship may differ depending on the circumstance of the contact.
Networking is natural in many cases, through connecting with a friend of a friend or a family member's colleague, or it can be more structured through digital mediums, networking events, and elected mentoring and shadowing options. The best job searchers spend the majority of their time networking.
Whether you are emailing a hiring manager, calling a former supervisor who has a contact at an organization, or connecting with an alumnus who currently works at an employer of interest, networking is often what makes the difference in a competitive application process.
