As many of you know, I am in full mode job search. The "gurus" say that the likelihood of getting an interview from just applying to a job board on Workopolis or Monster are pretty low. One should try to get referred into the company.
What is your experience with networking into the company? If you have no connections, do you start at the top of the hill (ie, CEO's office and work down?)
Looking forward to your thoughts and strategies.
