A New Way to Seek Your Fortune

In the old days, networking was still done to find new jobs or a job period.  In my mind's eye, I can see images of leaving calling cards or carte de vis while paying a social call to rich uncles and school friends.  Maybe a secret benefactor would be involved.

Nowadays, with people so scattered about, people turn to the internet for job hunting. Climber.com is a little different from the typical job seeking site as it is not really for job seekers.  That may seem a little counterintuitive, but it really isn't.  It is not for people who are desperate for employment, but rather a social networking site for people who are employed but wish to further their career.  

Like the old saying goes, when you are not looking that is when you find your true love or the perfect job, etcetera.  You are at your best when you are only passively looking.  You will get a sense of your true worth in the job market.  You may not find a new job as a guarantee, but you can anonymously be approached by recruiters without jeopardizing your current position.

networking is still soooo important, but of course it does not replace skills and quality
