If you want to look for a better job – a promotion, better pay, or to escape a toxic work environment without the prying eyes of your employer, you must build a professional network off the grid.

Having this network can help you identify the good positions which are not publicly posted or to make an introduction and recommendation to a hiring manager.

As companies begin shifting candidate sourcing to automated AI programs, and with the unbelievably bad odds for success when you rely on online submissions, your professional network will be critical for your success.

A new eBook, Using LinkedIn for Off-the-Grid Networking, will be released at 1 PM on Thursday.

It focuses on off-the-grid or passive networking – how to use this strategy to build your professional while avoiding prying eyes.
