Getting Connected In Your Community

  • Start "Networking" - It is good to get to know lots of people in your community. You can tell many people that you are looking for a job. They might know someone else who wants to hire you.
  • Be involved in community activities - You meet people everywhere you go: the grocery store; the library; your church, synagogue or mosque; social organizations or clubs. Attend many events and tell people you are looking for a job.
  • Be a volunteer - Being a volunteer gives you work experience and helps you meet people. It also helps your community.
  • Use online tools.
  • Visit different businesses - Watch what the workers do. Talk to people who have jobs. Below is a guide to help you do this.
