Falling into the black hole during the job application
process is discouraging. What if there was a way to
There is. And it is not as difficult as you may think.
Social networks let you connect and communicate
beyond the immediate sphere of people you know. The
next time you find a job posting, use this two step
Use the Two-Step Approach When Applying For
Most job applicants won't take the time to do these
two steps, and that's the very reason for this recom-
1. The first step is easy. You find a job online. But, before
you begin modifying your resume and crafting a cus-
tomized cover letter, move to the next step.
2. Step two requires finding someone who works inside
the company you are interested in.
When you find an ally, supporter, cheerleader, or
advocate inside the company, the odds of your resume
getting reviewed increase significantly. It is called an
According to the 2013 CareerXroads source of hiring
study, 24.5 percent of external hires (not internal transfers)
were from employee referrals. This was the number one
source of external hiring! Job boards only accounted for
18.1 percent. When you leverage the power of an inside
contact to refer you, your odds of getting hired increase.
Once you make contact with someone inside the
company, either someone you know directly or a friend
of a friend, you are now ready to apply online. And be
sure you mention the name of your inside contact on
the application. Your new inside contact may even be
willing to walk your resume into the hiring manager's
office, if you ask.
Expanding Your "Social" Network
You may be thinking that your network isn't very big
or you don't know enough people. Don't give up hope.
These are some ways to find someone to connect with
inside a company.
LinkedIn makes it very easy to search your network
for people you know inside a company.
Your best bet is to contact people you know well
inside the company.
If you don't have those connections, then find a second
degree connection inside the company. Armed with that
name, send a regular email to your first degree connection
and explain that you would like an introduction. Let
them know you are interested in learning more about
the company and their hiring practices. Also express
there is a sense of urgency for meeting this person.
You never know who knows who, and it is possible
you don't know where your Facebook friends work.
Don't overlook searching your friends' work experience.
You can search beyond your immediate network. Use
Facebook's "Search for Friends" page, and enter the
company name to see who you may know or be able
to get an introduction to.
Twitter Is An "Open" Network
If you can't find a connection within your network
on LinkedIn or Facebook, you can turn to the open net-
You don't need connections or friends to communicate
with people on Twitter, which makes it a great platform
for reaching out to people you do not know. Use the
Twitter "search people" option (at the top of most pages
on Twitter) to search for people who work for the com-
pany you are interested in.
Another option is FollowerWonk.com. This service
allows you to search Twitter by location and bio infor-
mation. In your first tweet to them, mention their Twitter
name and reference something from one of their tweets.
In your next tweet, you can get a bit more bold, and
send them a link to your LinkedIn profile with why you
would like to work for their company.
Google Plus Is "Open" Too
Believe it or not, Google Plus is the second largest
social network. (Facebook is number one.) You may be
surprised by the number of people who have a Google+
Google+ is an open network like Twitter. This means you don't
need to have an existing relationship in order to mention someone's
name in a message. When you do this, your message shows up
in their stream. You can try searching for people from the Google+
search bar or use a service like FindPeopleOnPlus.com to search
specific fields such as location and employer.
The Bottom Line:
Social networks provide business intelligence and insights. They
were designed to help connect people and make it easier to have
conversations and share information. Don't overlook the opportunity
to use them to expand your network and get noticed.
