About NY Career Meetup
NY Career Meetup connects job seekers with Managers and Employers who make hiring decisions through its events. The group connects job seekers and Recruiters, Hiring managers and Employers and gives them a chance to know about employment opportunities and gather information about companies/ individuals who are currently hiring for both part time and full time positions.
The group gives job seekers best opportunity to make connections face to face with Managers and Employers. NY Career Meetup and its events allow the opportunity for both parties to check possibilities for prospective employment.
NY Career Meetup provides great opportunity for Job Search Networking or Career Networking. 60% of all jobs are found by networking. It's true; some of the best jobs are never advertised. Many are filled by successful job seekers who networked with the right people and got the job before it was ever advertised. Employers love referrals and first look to tap their own workers for people they know that can fill open positions. It's cheaper and provides for more quality employees. People do business primarily with people they know and like. Resumes and cover letters alone are often too impersonal to convince employers to hire. Networking makes you a recommended member of a much smaller pool. Networking leads to information and job leads, often before a formal job description is created or a job is announced. There is more to successful networking than just talking to your friends. To be a successful networker you must have as many contacts as possible hear your pitch and understand that you are in the job market.
