When job hunting, people create accounts on LinkedIn and job portals. And then they wait. But is this good enough?

Did you know that employers look online for their hiring needs as a last resort?

That's true. They look first at internal candidates. Then referrals. Then, their close networks like alumni or associations and clubs. Then, recruitment agencies.

If they still don't find anyone, then they search the online ads.

So if you're job hunting, you need to spend less time on the career pages, and more time networking.
