Who do you know?

Executive Recruiters, The Ankenbrandt GroupSo, you’ve been using the power of YES to reach out to people. That’s positive networking and it is key to finding a new job. It’s all about who you know. How many applications have you sent into companies with no response? Some people have sent 100’s. You must get in front of the hiring managers and LinkedIn is a great place to do that. How to find more people to connect to?

1. Research companies within a commutable radius of your home.

2. Find the hiring managers at those companies and send them a connect. Most people are nice and will accept a connection.

3. Follow up with a quick elevator pitch about you.

This may not always work, but it’s a quicker way to get in front of the Manager/Director/VP than going through their application process.
