Whether you're looking for your very first job, switching careers, or re-entering the job market after an extended absence, finding a job whittles down to two main tasks: understanding yourself and understanding the job market. When the job market is tight, volunteering is a great way to learn new skills and to meet new people. Meeting new people allows you to network.
When you're networking, you're going to have to sift through the people you don't want to know to get to the people you do want to know. That's just an essential part of networking, but the good news is that with practice, you'll get better at spotting the people worth knowing. To get a job, you'll need a good resume.
