Where R U?

~ 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.
