Finding opportunities in India

Social Networking

Social networking is an increasingly important part of seeking employment and is actively used in India. Personal referrals are a key way for Indian employers to recruit so networking is essential for making contacts and accessing the Indian jobs market.

Using social networking sites like Brijj - India's leading professional networking site - and LinkedIn to connect with Indian employers can help you build your network and make useful connections for now and in the future. There are a number of different LSE alumni groups you might want to join including LSE Alumni India. You can search for LSE Alumni groups via LinkedIn. You can also email an LSE alum from India.
