There is a lot more to networking than standing in a crowded room with a glass of wine in your hand!

Networking can help you discover the types of work that will suit you or the organisations in which you will be comfortable, improve your chances of getting an interview, or uncover an opportunity which has never been advertised. It is especially useful for finding jobs in under-funded areas (e.g. the media) and in small organisations, which may not advertise jobs widely, or at all. It is always useful as a way of finding out what jobs are really like.
