Part 3: Think beyond the interview.

Part 4: Make yourself visible.

Here's where to start:

Professional associations

These are an excellent starting point, and it's barely an exaggeration to say that nearly every title and role you can imagine has some sort of national organization or community of interest, usually with local chapters and networking events.

Neighborhood professional groups

These are increasingly common, particularly in dense urban areas where trained professionals live and work. Here, you will find a more diverse group of skilled workers that probably share one thing with you—an interest and love for where you live.

Alumni organizations

Universities are always delighted to help their graduates move up in the world. Check in with them, let them know how you're doing, and see what they know about fellow alumni in your area.

Alternative networks

There's a whole new generation of events that have completely changed the networking model. Search for local TEDx events, "Nerd Nights," and other quirky networking opportunities.

Digital Networking

LinkedIn is your primary friend here, along with Facebook and Meetup. LinkedIn is a terrific way to brand yourself and make countless professional connections.

Part 5: Thinking about a new start with an old company?
