Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses and advanced LinkedIn strategy you should be using.
Here’s a great strategy for your networking on LinkedIn, for you to be able to target organizations that you would work for.
Let’s say a firm that shoes identified that you want to be involved with, and, yes, you know people on LinkedIn who you can network with.
Here’s the funny thing. Go to the company page and, yes, you’re going to find out a lot of information about that firm. Now look in the right-hand column, scroll down, and look at this section called, “people also viewed.”
What you’re going to find are firms that are similar to it who might be able to use skills like yours. When you click that page, going to be able to find individuals who were in your network who already work for that firm. These are people who you can network with in order to find out more about the company, get entrée into that organization and target that firm.
When all is said and done, people only have, you only have, I know I only probably half a finite amount of knowledge about conscious relationships I have with in particular firms. To expand that knowledge, I need to go to people beyond the ones I can to consciously think of all the time. That’s where this particular function works so well.
That’s what this particular function works so well. It takes you to firm similar to the ones you already know, shows you who you already know at those organizations and lets you do networking.
So, again, go to the company page of the firm. In the right-hand column, and look for, “people who looked at this company also looked at,” and go to those firms and see who you’re connected with at those organizations.
Do you think employers are trying to help you? You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.
The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.
