 Job Hunting? Forget The Ads - Join Facebook
Want a new job? Well, then forget the ads and join Facebook or a gym, as who you know matters more than what you know, says a new report.

According to the report, networking is the key more than ever when it comes to landing your dream job.

In fact, 80 per cent of jobs are now secured through networking, found job advice website careerplan4.me.

The report suggests that conversation at the gym or the school gates are just as effective as poring over the vacancies columns or randomly sending out your CV.

"Yes, use the right recruitment agencies, yes, look at job ads, but understand the secrets of a job search and work them. Keep every avenue open," the Daily Express quoted Tor MacLeod, the site's co-founder, as saying.

The report suggests job hunters to get chatting with new and relevant people every day, be it online or face-to-face.
