Why is networking so important? I see networking is important because as my adviser noted to me,"That employers are looking for ways to not hire you or anyone else." I thought about it, then it hit me; I got to prove that I fit in the culture. Each company have a culture that we might fit in or not. Everyone might not like the idea, but it is the wave of the future along with social networking. Right now, there are jobs but, it is who you know that can get you in.
