How to Use Linked In to Get a Job In This Market

So many people ignore what LinkedIn can do for you regarding a job search and it’s a huge missed opportunity. 

LinkedIn will help you learn more about a hiring manager.   When you know of an opening, and you know who the manager is, chances are that they are on LinkedIn.  You MUST review their profile, and see who they are connected to.  Keep searching until you find someone you know and ask them about this person.  What are they like?  What can they share about them?  The better you know someone, the more likely you are to be able to get your foot in the door and the better you could perform during the interview.

LinkedIn also allows you to present yourself in a very professional manner, and allow for others to see you before an interview.  So ensure your LinkedIn account is complete.  Check out either my account:  Connie Thanasoulis or my partner’s account:  Caroline Ceniza-Levine.  We have our pictures, our resume outline, people have recommended us, and we belong to groups that connect us to others in our field or interests.

It’s worth your time … get your LinkedIn account complete, and use the network to search for people you’ve worked with in the past, and hopefully for people you’ll work for in the future.
