Campus placements

With networks like linkedin and facebook, is it that tough to get in touch with people who might be in a position to help you?

Is it tough for you to get a telephonic interview? Is it tough to see that the first conversation you have - though not formally called an interview - could just be one kind of interview.

Reading the first few pages of Steve Jobs' biography, I came across this incident. Still in his teens, Steve called up Mr. Bill Hewlett for some purpose, got chatting, talked for a while and ended up with a job at HP!

Sure while there are more networks and more information easily available, ironically there are more barriers now. Barriers which are meant to be broken with the very same information available. Just do it.
