Tired of hearing, “It’s all about who you know”? Too bad. Learning how to network will not only land you a job, it’ll also help you move your career forward.

Making connections can help you when you need a letter of recommendation. Or if consider yourself shy, learn how to use LinkedIn to connect with professionals. Or schedule an informational interview to meet new people in your field to find out what a career in your major is really like.

According to Glassdoor, 86 percent of people in the first decade of their career will use social media when searching for a job—make connections online so you can use social media to your advantage instead of diving into Twitter rants.

No matter your career path, knowing how to network for a job will give you the extra leg up in the job market.
