Networking and Interviews

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve probably heard it quite a few times; building and utilizing your network is important.

With over 80 percent of job postings going unadvertised, it’s up to you to get out there, talk to employers and maintain personal connections. Networking and interviewing go hand-in-hand as your contacts can help you learn about careers in a particular field and industry as well as prepare you for interviews with professionals in your desired area of interest.

Hiatt offers a number of ways in which you can network and interview with a variety of different professionals in a number of diverse sectors. Before doing so, you will be required to complete our Networking Requirements (below). These also act as great first introduction into the expectations of networking and what your responsibilities are as an active interviewee.
