~ all month we’re blogging about how to find a new role~
Many great jobs are not publicly posted. To be sure you’re getting pinged regularly for opportunities, you have to be identifiable. Here’s some ideas:
– A great, compelling Linkedin profile–a must!
– Quotes in blogs & articles–everyone is looking for contributors, for content–no excuses especially for outbound roles
-Speaking opportunities generally mean a highly visible bio–if the idea has you breaking out in a cold sweat, try a panel discussion
-Jigsaw, Plaxo, Zoominfo, etc. –get your cell phone and email in all the contact database tools
-If you are proactively in the market, use job boards to post your resume–don’t worry about over exposure, that’s so 1985.
-Use industry known terms and job titles–we may be looking for a ‘guru’ but we’re not looking for a ‘guru’ if you know what I mean.
