Having connections is one of the strongest starting points in career success. When looking for a new job,
putting your resume into random applications isn’t always the most successful route. Networking provides an avenue to make a great impression and meet industry professionals who could
connect you to others or provide direct resources.
According to NPR, 80% of jobs are not listed through online applications. Try treating networking like it is a job by connecting with industry leaders on LinkedIn, attending events such as a chamber of commerce meeting or reaching out to mentors who can connect you with others.

A legendary magazine editor and book author, Helen Gurley Brown was born in the Ozarks and grew up in Little Rock. After a short stint as an escort and then ad agency secretary, she quickly vaulted into the copywriting department during the 1960s.
In 1962, her book Sex and the Single Girl hit the bestseller list, shockingly revealing that unmarried women love sex, and three years later she became editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan where she reigned for the next 32 years. Gurley, who loved fishnets and minidresses, is credited with giving women the freedom to be “self-made, sexual, and supremely ambitious .”

The Miami Heat may have won Sunday’s Game 1 of the playoff series against Milwaukee, 130-117, but they lost their No. 3 scorer and he might be sidelined for the next four to six weeks.
Guard Tyler Herro broke fingers of his right hand, media reports say. Heat head coach Erik Spolestra did not offer much of an update beyond the information that Herro would not play in the next game.
Herro, who averages 20.1 points per game, appears to have been injured in a diver for a loose ball. He did not reemerge from the locker room after halftime.
