5 Networking Tips Guaranteed to Take Your Career to the Next Level in the Twin Cities

August 11th, 2017

If you’re looking for a job in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, it helps to connect to a professional network. Here are five ways to expand your network and help you land the job or career move you’re looking for in the Twin Cities.

Local Networking Groups

The Twin Cities offer several networking groups designed specifically for job seekers in different industries or from various backgrounds. Check out the listings on Eventbrite, which allows you to filter results of upcoming events in various ways and to view locations on an included map. Or try typing “twin cities networking event” into your favorite search engine.

Job Fairs

Like networking opportunities, job fairs allow you to connect with a wide range of people in your industry in a short time. The added “perk” is at a job fair, many of these professionals are actively seeking to hire. Polish your resume, brush up on your job fair etiquette and attend a local fair to learn more about what’s out there in your industry.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering can help you build connections with people who share your values, learn new skills and demonstrate your commitment to staying engaged while you search for your next job. Searching for “volunteer opportunities in,” followed by the field that interests you, can help you find ways locally to share and build your skills.

Getting Personal

The Twin Cities are full of coffee shops, parks, museums and other venues to meet up with people in your professional network and talk about work and your job search. Commit to connecting with one person each week, whether to grab lunch or simply to walk and talk.

Working With a Recruiter

Staffing firms specialize in building relationships, making your recruiter a “node” in a vast professional network. To get the most from this relationship, contact a staffing firm that specializes in placing people in the jobs you’re looking for.
