Backdoor Job Hunting Tip: Networking When You’re Just Starting Out

“I post and no one reads it. I don’t know how to network.” – Are you this type of #jobseeker?

πŸ“Ί Like that old #SuperBowl Ladders commercial where they emphasize not everyone is allowed into their fold. Being inclusive sometimes is smarter.

🀝 This rings true with your relationship cultivation.

πŸ—οΈ When building your network, it’s imperative to be strategic.

πŸ“… Grab this solution and implement it into your calendar today:

1️⃣ Reach out to your current contacts, even if it’s a bit small at first. Cultivate genuine relations by sharing valuable insights or links, commenting or sharing posts, and building rapport. Share knowledge with each other. Have intention.

2️⃣ Join online professional networks and relevant associations. Choose both general and niche groups. See step 1.

3️⃣ Answer questions on Quora and always leave a signature/CTA directing them to your LinkedIn for further discussion.

4️⃣ Mark your calendar to repeat these steps every day.

5️⃣ Attend conferences and networking events (virtually) and be active.
