Job Search Networking - Quiz

A quick note - this isn't one of those "You failed!" or "You got a perfect score!" kind of quizzes. Although it will score your results (for those who need to know), the real value of this particular quiz is in its ability to get you thinking. Therefore, make sure you read the accompanying answer page linked at the end. Good luck! ~Sue J


Question 1: You Should Network With...

a:
Only people of power and influence.
b:
Everyone you know and meet.
c:
Anyone except other job seekers.
 


Question 2: When It Comes To Successful Networking, it's...

a:
Not what you know, but who you know.
b:
Not what you know and who you know, but who knows you.
c:
Not who you know, but who they  know.
 


Question 3: When Meeting a Potential Networking Contact for the First Time, You Should...

a:
Establish interest in that person and find a common denominator (something shared or held in common) between the two of you.
b:
Have an elevator speech ready that will extol your skills and virtues as a potential employee.
c:
Be prepared by having a job hunting business card that includes the URL to your resume Web page.
 


Question 4: The Best Networking Contacts...

a:
Are able to figure out what might be a good fit for you.
b:
Understand exactly what you're looking for.
c:
See possibilities in areas you haven't thought of.
 


Question 5: Once You've Created A Network Contact...

a:
It's not necessary to communicate with him or her again, unless things change.
b:
It's a good idea to contact them weekly in order to keep your name at the forefront of their thinking. "It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease."
c:
It's a good idea to make yourself aware of issues and opportunities that may be of interest to this contact, and stay in regular communication.
 


Question 6: The People Who Are Most Successful In Making Network Contacts...

a:
Are people who are persuasive and/or interesting speakers.
b:
Are people who are intuitive and/or empathic listeners.
c:
Are people who are able to genuinely recognize the best qualities in others.
 


Question 7: Having an "A-Type" Personality or Being an Extrovert...

a:
Isn't necessary to successful networking.
b:
Is essential to successful networking.
c:
Gives you a substantial advantage over more introverted job seekers.
 


Question 8: In Order To Network Successfully...

a:
The avenue of communication matters less than the message and the resulting impression/connection that the message creates.
b:
It's vital that your network contacts have an opportunity to meet you in-person. Anything less won't make the same impression or generate the same type of support.
c:
It's not necessary to connect with your contacts. It's only necessary that they know who you are and how to reach you.
 


Question 9: When It Comes To Networking, The Following Is Usually True:

a:
Most of the people you know will be glad to act as a network contact for you.
b:
Most of the people you know won't want to be a network contact - period.
c:
Even if they don't want to be a network contact for you, most people know of at least one other person who might be.
 


Question 10: It's The Quality of your Network, Not the Quantity.

a:
True. Knowing a handful of influential people is more important than having a larger number of "less influential" contacts.
b:
False. Each contact, regardless of perceived influence, has value. It's more important, therefore, to have a large number of contacts in a wide area of interests and/or influence.
c:
True. One good contact who is willing to speak on your behalf is better than a dozen who may only keep a cursory look-out for potential opportunities.
 


Question 11: You Should Arm Each of Your Network Contacts with...

a:
A copy of your resume and a stack of your job hunting business cards.
b:
A stack of your resumes.
c:
Your professional bio and contact information.
 


Question 12: The Best Places To Network Are:

a:
Trade shows or professional associations relevant to your target field and industry.
b:
Job fairs, job related message boards, or anywhere that job seekers and potential employers congregate.
c:
Community events, sporting events, humanitarian or volunteer organization events.
d:
All of the above, and then some.
