THE JOB SEARCH IS A PAIN IN THE NECK

Trying to find a job: working with recruiters, contacting hiring managers, responding to job postings. It is painful, it is tedious and it is discouraging. But it doesn't have to be that way. Wouldn't you like to cut through the red tape and actually talk to someone? Wouldn't you like to talk to your new boss first? Let's walk through this.

START WITH A COMPANY SEARCH ON LINKEDIN

You found a job you like. Now, find that company on LinkedIn and follow their company page. Next search the employees of that company to find your new boss. There is an 80% chance they have a profile and they are active.

FIGURE OUT YOUR CONNECTION

Do you have a mutual connection? Ask for an introduction and give a specific reason for the intro. Did you attend the same school? Do you attend the same church? Are you part of the same club? Do you share a LinkedIn group?

MAKE YOUR OFFER

Tell your new boss you would like to meet them for coffee or lunch. You want to share your ideas on the position and what you bring to the table.

NOW IT'S UP TO YOU

Come prepared. Your boss will have questions they want to ask. Tell them you will be glad to answer any question they have, but first you would like to share what you are passionate about and how that translates to your new job.

GOOD LUCK!

I want to hear from you. Share your success stories. Tell everyone something unique you did to get a job. Did my article help? Share that story too.

Thank you for reading, please share with others.
