Job seekers know the power of networking in their search for employment. But it’s not just who you know; it’s also who your contacts know. An effective way to make the most of your connections is by asking for referrals.

A referral is just one piece of the hiring puzzle, but it can support a well-crafted resume and help your application rise to the top of the stack. It’s a recommendation made to a hiring manager, on your behalf, by someone who knows you both. 

What can a referral do for you? You may have one of several goals in mind when asking a contact to refer you: Perhaps you’re hoping to set up an informational interview. Or maybe you’ve applied for an open position and hope to cement your candidacy with a personal endorsement.

A thoughtful recommendation gives context to your résumé and adds a stamp of approval from someone the hiring manager knows and trusts. It’s a personal introduction that connects you with the company on a level that’s deeper than the rest of the application process allows. A referral says, “This is someone to pay attention to.” read more

Report: Boston Getting More Bike Lanes, Hubway

The new Hubway bike share station in the Charlestown Navy Yard.

Boston will be getting more bike lanes and Hubway bike share stations, the Boston Herald reported Tuesday, just two days after a visiting MIT scientist was struck and killed while riding her bike in the Kenmore Square area.

The city plans to add up to 20 miles of new bike lanes and 20 new Hubway kiosks and might also look to install cycle tracks on major roadways from Roxbury to the Public Garden, Transportation Commissioner Tom Tinlin told the Herald.

Last week, a new Hubway station opened at the recently built Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in the Charlestown Navy Yard, and Boston Bikes Director Nicole Freedman told Patch that another kiosk is planned in the Hayes Square area.

With plans to install more stations in South Boston, Roxbury and other locations, the total number of Hubway options could soon approach 100, the Herald reported.

Also in the works are more divided bike lanes, like the one on Western Avenue in Brighton, and cycle tracks—bike paths that separate bicyclists from motorized traffic—on Charles Street, Malcolm X Boulevard, Seaver Street and around the Public Garden, officials told the Herald. read more

How Much Snow is the South End Getting This Weekend?

The snowfall estimates from Channel 7 as of 7 a.m. Friday, Feb. 22.

Will the South End see six inches of snow this weekend, or will we see more like three inches with rain mixed in?

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. The NWS said 3 inches of snow or more is possible and warned of heavy wet snow that may fall at 1 to 2 inches per hour. Snow may mix with rain in the South End area.

The NWS warned that the heavy wet snow could bring down tree limbs and result in scattered power outages.

Here is a look at the snowfall estimates for Boston as of 10 a.m. Friday:

Channel 4 (WBZ): 4 to 6 inches south of the Mass Pike, including Boston; 6 to 12 inches north of the Mass Pike

  • Channel 5 (WCBV): 3 to 6 inches south of the Mass Pike, including Boston; 6 to 9 inches north of the Mass Pike
  • Channel 7 (WHDH): 3 to 6 inches closer to Boston; 6 to 10 inches just north and west of Boston
  • NECN: 6 inches

Channel 7 meteorologist Pete Bouchard wrote on his weather blog:

Storm start-up still looks like Saturday afternoon. We’ll still be able to get around and the amounts will be light through midnight – in fact, we may even mix from Boston to the South Shore. (Cape sees rain.) read more
