It’s great to get referred to job leads and contacts, but if you’re getting referrals that don’t fit what you want or need, my job search post for Work Reimagined highlights 2 main reasons this is happening:

- People don’t know what you DO.
Read tips and strategies for fixing both of these problems on Work Reimagined: Help! People Refer Me To Jobs I Don’t Want.
Check the status of your own job search: Do you know what would be the ideal referral for you? Do you know what would be helpful to your job search right now? Do your connections understand what you do? Are they up-to-date on your full experience and skill set?
