Answered by: ByVirtualist career experts

Networking in a remote job search can seem more complicated because everything is done… remotely. However, you can network effectively online.

The number one way to network is by utilizing LinkedIn, as well as conducting informational interviews.

Here are a few tips to consider:

To move to online networking, begin connecting with people at companies you’d like to work for and with people who are in positions you’d ultimately like to be in.
For people you’d like to connect with to learn more about their work, company, and industry, consider asking for an informational interview. These are great ways to learn about new information while growing your network.
Don’t forget to tell your friends, family, neighbors, dog sitter, hairdresser, and anyone you may come into contact with that you’re job searching.
