Today, with the economy continuing to struggle, a lot of friends and acquaintances are looking for work. Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to help directly most of the time. When contacted for help, I sometimes feel like there is nothing I can do.
Opening your network can be a scary thing, but it is worthwhile. The help is genuinely appreciated, even if it doesn’t lead to anything. It doesn’t cost much. It’s really the ultimate in risk/return.
