“ When searching for a job, job networking is extremely important. Often, its not only what you know, its who you know in the organization that leads to getting hired. I would give Effortless Networking several tries. I would expect there would be many new faces at each meet up. If you only see the same people, who were not helpful, try another networking group. Otherwise, attending could be like the definition of insanity--trying the same thing over and over again that doesn't work, hoping for a different result. ”
— Ben on Feb 16, 2011.
“ Great event to meet people. Although the objective is to pick job search and networking techniques, the bigger benefit is to network and help each other out. It would be beneficial to have a networking event for specific functions / sectors (e.g. sales & marketing or human resources or IT or finance / health care or medical device or food & beverage industry). ”
— MP on Jan 18, 2011.
“ Holly and Andrij have created a fantastic forum for meeting like-minded and motivated people. I've attended 2 times and each time have taken away some new piece of information (ie new skill, way of thinking) that I could apply immediately. This group is useful even if you're not actively job searching but still want to stay plugged in. ”
— Philip H. on Jan 17, 2011.

“ This was my first time at this group and I thought it was great. The organizers and attendees provided excellent support and ideas for networking, job searching and selling / branding yourself. I've learned the importance of fully completing my LinkedIn profile and asking for recommendations from managers and colleagues. I'm on my way to my ideal job! ”
— Melanie on Aug 23, 2010.
