Trying to improve your chances of finding a job? Then strengthen your network. Take inventory of every person you know. Pull out the high school yearbook and dig up your outdated address list. Your list should include friends, relatives, former co-workers, neighbors and past acquaintances. Don't narrow the names initially. Instead, try to make an exhaustive list of everyone you know. Once complete, go through the list and eliminate the obvious - but be stubborn when it comes to giving someone the hook. After all, the larger the list, the more likely you will come in contact with someone who can help you.
