An Advanced LinkedIn Strategy

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses and advanced LinkedIn strategy you should be using.

 

[spp-transcript]

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.

Only Ask for LinkedIn Recommendations from People You Know

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter encourages you to only ask for recommendations from people you know.


Have you ever received a message from someone overseas who asks you to recommend them on LinkedIn?

I have and I receive them all the time. For me, it is infuriating and for you, you should be embarrassed.

Do use a recent example, what do I know about your work as a shipping clerk in Pakistan that would cause me to recommend you? Do you think people can figure out pretty quickly that this is a phony recommendation?

I do.

I will not help game the LinkedIn system by giving fake recommendations and it says a lot about you that you have to reach out to someone like me and others to get recommendations from us.

Only asked for LinkedIn recommendations from people you know. They are the ones who could write textured and detailed and nuanced recommendations that will reveal something about you that an employer will care about.

What can I say about this person in Pakistan?

“He’s a really good guy!”

Do you think that would be helpful or, do you think someone reading it with think of you and me as being liars?

I know the answer that and so do you.
