Informational meetings

Recently a client asked me how they could find out more information about the health sector, apart from what they could find on the internet. I spoke to my friends in recruitment to find out exactly what are the best methods currently to get the inside track on an organisation which will assist someone in getting employment and this is what they said:

Ask your friends and colleagues if they know anyone in the sector that you could speak to. Look through their friends on Linkedin and see if any of them work in that sector, and say, ‘X, would it be possible that you could introduce me to Y’. Usually people are delighted to help.
