In addition to job postings, many people search for work in Canada through networking. You can also use networking as a tool to let people know that you are looking for work.


Who Should be in My Network?

You may already have a network. Your network starts with the people closest to you—your family and friends. Your network can also include your acquaintances—people you know socially. Here are some people to consider:

  •  Neighbours and family friends

  •  Employers and co-workers

  •  Club members

  •  Teammates and classmates

  •  Teachers and coaches

  • Community leaders

  •  Librarians

Good networkers are people who share in the lives of others by giving and receiving information, advice, support and commitment.
