    These days it's all about who you know, and not necessarily what you know. My previous 2 jobs, I got as a result of knowing someone within the company, or we worked in related fields/companies and got direct referral.

    Very big in the fire service / EMS world. Got my new EMT job in part due to a Capt in my FD putting in a good word to a manager at the company.. They went thru an academy together; have a great deal of trust about such things
