Example text

In these networking settings, you should never ask for anything upon first meeting a person; you just develop a rapport. But you need to leave a clear, favorable impression. When you first meet someone, say what you’re interested in and what your skills are, but don’t ask for a job or a favor. Try to get the names of other people to talk to, other names you can add to the network. Often it is these other referrals that lead to a job or to help once you are in a job. ➣ Make a favorable impression and keep it fresh.

A traditional reverse chronological format, where you account for each year of work, is best. Functional resumes arouse suspicions; the reader wonders what has been left out and why. You don’t have to include everything you’ve ever done, but now is not the time to be modest, either. In addition to the typical Education and Professional/Work Experience categories, you can include sections such as Volunteer or Leadership Experience, Computer Skills, and Language Skills. Volunteer and other unpaid experiences can be very important in getting a political job because they show your dedication and commitment to a cause.

The best time to start building a network is long before you start looking for a job or for help once in the job. Meeting people, doing little favors for them, and staying in touch are the keys, and this can all happen in a relaxed, friendly manner. Look for ways to meet people, eventually to meet people in the area you want to work in. Parties, meetings, and get-togethers can all provide such chances. The more you do it, the more people you will meet. Keep their names, titles, addresses, phone numbers and e-mails in a handy database for future reference.
