Excerpted from the Mexico Career Guide
In Mexico an important means of finding a job is through one’s networks and contacts. The best way for a jobseeker to start is by letting families and friends know about the search for a new position and the area of job interest. These efforts can lead to interesting opportunities or new business contacts.
