Finally, there's the family network. And no, we don't mean asking your family to connect you with their bosses and friends. Instead, just introduce the idea of keeping an ear out for each other. If they hear of a really good job opening in a family member's line of work, ask them to pass the word on. If they come across a great conference or workshop recommended by people they trust at work, have them send over a link.
Similarly, have you told your family members that Walmart will pay for you and all associates to complete high school, start college, and/or complete a college degree? All they ask is that associates contribute $1 a day. Perhaps you’ll be the reason a family member joins Walmart and continues their education!
Family networking in a casual and supportive way can be very powerful, simply broadening the horizons of everyone in the family across multiple industries and experience levels.
