An excellent example of how powerful networking can be is to review Mark's journey. Mark is a friend of mine who happens to be a high school football coach. Last fall he became the head football coach at a local high school. Mark was given the impossible task of turning around a woeful program in just one year. It did not happen. (No one could have done any better than he did.) His contract was not renewed. This was his first head coaching job. Previously, he had been a highly successful defensive coordinator for several years at another high school in the area.

He sought my advice regarding his job search. Mark is married with 3 small children and a mortgage, so he had a sense of urgency. He had to find another coaching job ASAP.....
