About Networking in Australia

If you are migrating to Australia to work you should know that just one fifth of all jobs make it to public advertising or recruitment agencies. The rest are filled beforehand because someone knows someone who knows someone, or a friend knows a friends that's right for the role.

That's 80% of jobs that you'll never see, unless that "someone" knows you or you are that "friend of a friend".

Australians are a very friendly bunch and they love to talk, about their work and everything else. Whether it's at the coffee machine between meetings, a sneaky wine at lunch or during one of the thousands of fun things we find to fill our free time.

And the fact is, unless you're there networking with them you're drastically reducing your chances of finding that "hidden" job market.

That's where this book comes in... A chinwag. A chat. A catch-up. Call it what you will (and Australians rarely call it "networking"), this book is here to help you adapt to the Aussies' natural tendency to talk and use it to your advantage in finding the right role.

By sharing with you a very successful system for a very unsystematic concept recruitment guru Jill Noble shows you that you don't have to be a people person or an extrovert to engage the right contacts - guiding you through warming up your cold calls, boosting your body-language and taking big steps with small talk.

Combining wonders of word-of-mouth with a great guide to industries, associations and agencies, "Networking in Australia" is an essential tool to help you find the job you want.
