Some job hunters say, “I don’t have many contacts.” Some job hunters whose best chance of getting a good job is by networking have the smallest, least useful networks to tap into. These people must work hard to expand their networks. They need to make an exhaustive list of their contacts; they will probably find that they have
more than they think. Some job hunters say, “I don’t want to use my friends.” Suppose that the position of you and a friend were reversed: Someone you know is job hunting and needs help that you’re well positioned to give.

Your friends, relatives, and acquaintances are certainly the most useful sources of help in your job search; you can’t afford not to use them. You may find you even enhance your relationship with them.
