    I agree it's important to get out from behind your desk in order to meet people and network but selling this as the best/quickest way to get a job is unrealistic. With so many lines of communication available a person can get 1,000x more networking done through fb, lnkd, twitter, etc (even phone calls). Grabbing lunch and meeting people is great but there is far more that can be done behind a desk to get a job especially since so much of our communicating is done through social media...I would recommend a follow up interview with someone under the age of 30
