I suggested that Mark accomplish one task right away -write down the names of every single person he knew-football coaches, friends, family members, people from his church, neighbors, his wife's friends-this was the beginning of his networking list. I have coached a lot of people over the years re. their job search. Compiling their networking list is always the first assignment I give to them. It is one of the most effective job search techniques.

Mark followed my advice-he "dove head-first" into this assignment. Not everyone I have worked with approached this assignment with the determination that Mark showed me.
