INCOMPLETE AND UNSUITABLE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACKNOWLEDGED

TAP YOUR NETWORK
Everybody knows somebody. Within your existing
network there are probably three jobs that would be
appropriate for you, but the people who could help
open doors to those jobs just haven t thought of you.
Make a list of everyone you know. Set a goal to touch
base with three people you have not talked to for a
year or more. Meet one of them for coffee or lunch.
Identify the 25 most influential people in your network
and brainstorm ways to strengthen your relationships
CONNECT WITH ALUMNI
We generally like people who have something in
common with us; who share the same values or hob-
bies; or have gone to the same school. Call the alumni
in your region, go to meetings and grow your network.
Adding three new alumni per week (through alumni
directories or LinkedIn) is a solid approach--even
better if these are in your industry.
These include ones hosted by charities and pro-
fessional organizations. Talk to at least one person
at every meeting who you haven t met yet. If you
can get the list of attendees beforehand, identify at
least one person who you would like to meet and
make arrangements to connect there in person. With-
out imposing, look for an excuse to follow up---by
meeting again, or getting a referral to someone else.
USE LINKEDIN TO MAXIMUM EFFECT
LinkedIn is a powerful tool to easily connect with
the right people. Search your target market based on
your industry, qualifications, university and interests,
and connect with the people who interest you. For
example, if you work in the insurance sector, you
could aim to connect with all potential bosses and
human resource departments in this industry and in
your market. You can even set goals for yourself,
such as, "Connect to all general managers and human
resource managers in the insurance industry in my
city by the end of April."
CHECK JOB BOARDS
Many companies and recruiters use them to find
the right candidate. Define the top job boards for
your skill set and put your resume there. Choose a
catchy, succinct headline that encourages the reader
to open the attachment. Many show when your resume
was last updated. To avoid getting shifted deeper into
the pile of applicants, update it weekly.
Senior-level professionals are recruited almost
exclusively though recommendation or by head-
hunters. We know about jobs that will never be adver-
tised and we have experience finding openings. If
you work with a head-hunter, choose carefully. Identify
several (but no more than five) whom you trust and
be prepared to follow-up.
