It will not get you a job but it can expose you to others. Shoulder

personal contact over a blind call/application.
Plus it's exposure to more information in your field.

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you
gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his
own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
