Networking on the Net
Online Networking is one of the best strategies for your job search, enabling you to find new opportunities. There is truth in the saying “getting a job is based on who you know not what you know.” This is
where networking comes in. The ideal candidate is the one with the right level of expertise and fit. However, how do you get in front of the person making those hiring decisions, to show you are the ideal candidate? Do
not underestimate the power of professional connections you make.
A great tool to build and foster your professional network is the online networking platform, LinkedIn. Make sure that your LinkedIn profile is up to date and engage professionals in your career or industry. Invite past
and current associates to virtual coffee hours, to catch up. Nurture your professional relationship and when appropriate, ask to be introduced to other professionals with career or job influence.
Join LinkedIn professional networking groups specific to your career or industry. Stay engaged by reading their posts and commenting in meaningful ways. Research companies you are interested in and identify potential
contacts that can help support your job search.
