Ninety percent of the career advancement battle is having contacts in the companies in which you wish to work. Podcasting is the tool that will allow you to get your foot in the door and establish a relationship. Podcasting can help you make the connections you need to get a job, and you don’t need to be a technical geek or a talk show host to be successful!
