What is this article about?

When speaking of your nursing career, 'networking' may seem like an overused term, but the importance of networking has never been greater for career growth and mastery. Networking is part of any prudent job-search strategy, but it’s just as important to continue networking while employed than it is when unemployed. Networking can help you manifest your next position, meet like-minded professionals and perhaps make some friends along the way. There are varying reports on what percentage of jobs are found through connections rather than job postings, with most stating anywhere between 40 to 75% of positions are found through networking rather than other routes.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
