Rhode Island Networking to Open Doors to Jobs

What's It All About?  

A benchmark in a productive job search is to have at least 20-30 job search related conversations weekly, which sounds like a huge number -- until you participate in networking groups.  People in transition should schedule time to network and collaborate with others to identify unadvertised jobs.  RINODtoJOBS networking group provides a forum to build relationships (networks) and learn about resources to help you in your transition to new employment, self-employment or the next stage in your life. The goal of a job-search networking group is to provide a place to network and to help you overcome the fear of networking.  In fact, we hope you learn that networking can be fun and open doors to new opportunities in ways you never imagined.

Effective January 2013, RINODtoJOBS has gone virtual. Visit our LinkedIn group, RI Networking to Open Doors to Jobs. If you are a professional in a job search or a recruiter or hiring manager, please send a request to join with a note about how you believe being a part of the group can help you (or how you can help others in transition).

Why Network?


Networking is often the part of the job search that job-seekers fear because they equate it to “cold calling.” Networking is not “cold calling” and is so much more than just adding names to your Rolodex, your email contact list or your LinkedIn account.  It is all about building relationships and trust, and it starts by giving rather than taking. 

Networking is a tool to become a “known” candidate, showcase your transferable skills, and build trust so contacts will want to refer you for jobs or provide you with the name of a person in their network to move you closer to landing.  Participating in Rhode Islanders Networking to Open Doors to Jobs can provide you with some of those conversations-- but it will provide you with so much more.  It is a place to:

·                   showcase your best skills in managing a project-- your own job search                 

·                   try on leadership and organizing roles within the group

·                   practice your ability to market yourself

·                   have some fun (yes, we’ll have some fun in special programs)

·                   get ideas for new networking avenues

·                   receive and share leads; express your job search needs

·                   learn the best way to build your online network
