7. Your networking simply wasn’t strong enough
Networking is difficult at best, especially for you introverts out there. There is an old adage that states that you are only three people away from anyone in the world and it is, most assuredly, true. You need to force yourself out there and mingle up a storm. Let everyone know you are looking for work. Have certain target companies? Get out on LinkedIn and Facebook. Do your research and send out the feelers. Make those connections. Many is the time when someone who networked harder than you got the job. Don’t forget that many companies have referral programs for their employees. Help someone get that bonus!
