If you’re lucky, your network includes a few contacts you can always count on. These are the people who are truly in your corner. They say they’ll forward your resume on—and then do. They help you prepare for an interview—and want you to keep them apprised of your progress. They congratulate you on your new job—and connect you with someone with years of experience in the field.
