Hi Everyone

While I have a had some positive responses to my job search, I need to keep the ball rolling until I get an offer.

So if you have some ideas how one can do some lost cost networking (ie, not going to conferences or networking events that are $40 a pop) can you please pass them along?

And remember, when you refer someone, you might be doing both parties a favour. The person you refer might be just the person the other party is looking for :)

Thanks in advance.

We messaged back and forth about a month or so ago before I headed out on vacation. I'm more than happy to do what I can.

I don't think I received your resume - if you can send me that (you should have my email in our past messages, or pm me again) I'll try to help.

Hi Dave

Nice to hear from you and hope you had a good vacation. Odd you did not receive it. Maybe it got caught in your spam filters. I appreciate your help and will resend this aft. Thanks again very much.

Are you willing to relocate? I'd love to do more for you - but I don't have any business contacts in Canada. I do believe you have my email. If so, send your resume and if I hear of something, I'll pass it on.

Likewise, I have no Ontario contacts. Is relocation an option?

Hi KK and John

Thanks for responding. Yes, relocation is an option.

If you are at a loose end and have some time and want to meet people in business, some ideas:
- get involved with the local Rotary club or similar business groups.
- if you have a trade or professional body - get in touch and offer volunteer services.
- again based on the above, ask about any free Continuing Professional Development talks or other free seminars that you can attend. Be early, stay late and talk with attendees.
- web forums (like this one!) look for anything linked to your work or your locality that may involve business interests. You could make some contacts.
- local papers. Check out what's happening. There may be events to go to. Scan the articles in case there is a lead into a specific business.
