Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explains why it’s important to keep your network active when you’re not looking for a job and how to do it.

Summary

Usually, when people talk with you about networking, is with the idea finding a new position. I also want talk with you about networking from the standpoint of what really advantages you and your career. There was a survey not long ago that said that 60% of chief financial officers saw that there networking value to them in their work from the standpoint of building their business, helping with the business growth of the organization. 10% of them spoke in terms of job hunting.

Notice that big disparity. In most of your life, in most of your career, it is about business growth. It is about helping yourself as a professional advance. As a matter fact, 1 of the best answers that I suggest people give to the question, "How do you use LinkedIn," is not the talk about job search, but about talking about having a ready supply of people to reach out to in order to help you in your career with being successful and getting input on problems that may crop up.

Once you have this network established, like any garden, it needs to be tended to. I suggest a couple of things.

First of all, keep you network growing. Do things to advance your network that could be something as simple as tagging articles and sharing them, posting new information, helping others. That's the idea of passing it on. It is the idea of helping others.

If your professional association, I know there is the temptation to be less involved with it once you are in your new job. However, the relationships that you build in the professional organization will go a long way toward helping you in your new career. Thus, it becomes really important for you to be out there networking all the time.

Lastly, and I know that is the tendency to slack off on this, keep your online presence up to date. Other folks have questions and they want advice. Be helpful. You never know when your relationship with someone is something that you are able to benefit from later on. And, from the good karma perspective, you're obviously doing a good deed by being helpful to others.All

Who Should You Network With to Find a Job? (VIDEO)


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter tells you exactly who you should be networking with to find a job.

Summary

Today's question is, "we all know that networking is the primary way that people find jobs." You do know that, don't you? As a matter of fact, the statistics show job boards fill about 6% of all positions. Recruiters fill about 20%. There is overlap in those 2 numbers because recruiters may find a resume from a job board. Let's get job boards total credit. They fill 26% of all positions. The rest of filled networking. The question becomes who do you network with? How do you find that who the right person is for your next job?

The question of who you should network with is really easy. The answer is EVERYONE! EVERYONE you come into contact with should be someone that you networking with. I'm not telling you to have a conversation with your butcher and say to them, "Hey! I'm trying to find the job," because all that's going to happen is are going to think you can afford what you buying.

I'm telling you that there are so many people that you come into contact with you could be talking with about what it is that you do and just say, "If you know of someone or could point me to someone, it would be really great."

My favorite story about networking comes from someone who runs a networking group. He tells a story about someone in his group that lost their job with 1 of the banks. Is cleaning person overheard the conversation he was having with someone over the phone and asked whether she could have a copy of his resume. Thinking that she was ONLY a cleaning person, he could've pooh-poohed the request and then give her the resume. She asked again about a week later and he still didn't do it. Finally, she asked his wife and the wife came to him and said, "Would you give her a copy of the resume? It's only a piece of paper."

As it turns out, her husband, ran a large group at another bank. She worked as a cleaning person as part of her religious practice of humility and, as a result, he found his next job was cleaning person.

There are people that you know at your church, synagogue or mosque . . . Temple . . . Any number of places who can be of help to you. You need to make people aware. It isn't about telling people that you're looking for work is a critical mistake. Not telling folks that you're connected with on LinkedIn that you can use some help is a huge mistake. Unless people know that you need help, they are not going to help you.

A great story from a few years ago . . So I know work at the old Merrill Lynch and I listen to an audio tape that they used to give to their top performers. These are the top salespeople who worked at the old Merrill Lynch. Huge performers! Great salespeople! They had this trainer who they flew out to Hawaii to meet with the top 1/10 of 1% of all salespeople at Merrill Lynch and he says to them, "How would you like me to increase your business and will only take about 6 seconds? 6 seconds that you can invest in every phone call." They all look around and think to themselves, "6 seconds and you can increase your business by 8%? That would be terrific!"

"You in the front row. Time this. Here's what you have to say in every call. 'Is there anyone else you know who I can be helping?'"

For you, you want to be helping people and also want to be sure that they know that you can use some help. You just want to simply say, "I just want to remind you that I am looking for a job. This is what I do. If you hear of something, don't hesitate to make me aware of it or point someone to me."

It's really simple and straightforward approach to networking. It's something that you can do all the time..

The Basic Principles of Networking | No BS Job Search Advice Radio

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses two basic principles of networking that you must follow.

Summary

I have advice for you today about the importance of networking.  For many of you, you are doing it all wrong.  To you network is being online.  You are on LinkedIn. You're making connections with people.  You are doing a whole bunch of stuff.  But you're not really talking to anyone.

Yes, it is important to influence people with how you communicate.  You are absolutely right.  There is a difference, however, when you are talking with someone for real, with meeting with someone for real and doing online networking.

I want to encourage you to get out of the house, get out of your office, and start scheduling regular sessions where you start meeting with people.

There was a suggestion made some years ago to have lunch with someone every day. That was a networking strategy.  I want to encourage you to talk with someone every day about some professional circumstance where you are creating an influence, or you are creating your brand/an image in people's minds. Help them.  Chat with them.  See where they can use advice and counsel.. Doing things like that where you are actually sitting in talking with someone, as opposed to emailing or texting will go a long way toward creating the sort of influence is going to help you with getting an introduction at a time that you will need it.

Again, as I said in a recent video, the next recession is coming.  I don't know when it is coming but there is another recession that is going to be coming.  I have my opinions about when that is going to be, but it is irrelevant. If I am right or wrong.  Ultimately another recession is going to come.  You want to be in a position where people know you, like you and trust you.  And want to help you.  They understand what you do and they know you like you, trust you and want to help you.  

Get out and talk to people.

Help.

Do you really think employers are trying to help you?

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell you as much 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.

Stupid Networking Mistakes: Turning Down an Invitation (VIDEO)


“I got an email invite from CTO of a software startup that was recently acquired. He mentioned looking up my profile/works online and was interested to talk to me over a coffee. I am, however, not looking for a change in job right now. How do I politely decline him while mentioning that I would like to be in touch with him / or get in touch when I am actively looking.”

Summary

Here's a fun question!

"How do I turn down a coffee invite from the CTO of a successful startup?" They go on to say, "I got an email invite from CTO of a software startup that was recently acquired. He mentioned looking up my profile/works online and was interested to talk to me over a coffee. I am, however, not looking for a change in job right now. How do I politely decline him while mentioning that I would like to be in touch with him / her and be able to get in touch when I am actively looking." They live in the Bay area.

I want to take this into a broader range of an answer and talk about how you respond to an invitation for coffee from someone who might be interested in talking with you about you . . Or might be interested in talking with you about them.

It goes back to the basic idea about networking. Why do you network? It's to build up relationships of the time, we might actually need help, they know, like, trust and respect you. Maybe the trying to build up a relationship in order to find out if there's something in your organization. I don't know anything about your experience or your level professionally so it could go either way, but the likelihood is that they are going to be talking about trying to recruit you.

A long time ago, I learned a wonderful lesson. It is the notion that the person who gets ahead isn't always the smartest or work the hardest (although those a great qualities to have). The person who gets ahead is the one who remains alert to opportunities. Sometimes those are internal to the organization, but more often than not, they are external.

Whether you are changing jobs or interested in changing jobs right now or not, developing relationship with the successful individual, someone who is further along the road and you are, can always pay off. To decline an invitation is really a goofy response.

Yes, you are happy. Walk in there as a happy individual who likes his work. Consider that you might like your work even more if you are pay $25,000 more than you are now would receive more options. Isn't that possible? I would tell you to go on this meeting.

If you really do want to decline, do so politely , but start off by asking, ". But the subject would be of our conversation?" Make them explain what the purpose of the meeting is, discuss dates and times to meet, but they continue by saying, "I want to be clear, I'm not out there actively looking for position." This way, you're not leading them on in any way.

I want to keep encouraging you to get out there and keep talking to people. After all, your network is your net worth. Developing relationships with someone NOW when you are not actively looking can only be profitable to you at some point in the future.

Job Search Networking using Facebook | Job Search Radio


The statistics are clear that most jobs are filled by referral, rather than by answering job ads online yet when people think of networking, they head to LinkedIn instead of where all there friends are at Facebook.

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter speaks with Joshua Waldman, the author of “Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies” about how to incorporate Facebook into your personal and job search branding and his actual job search.

What Can Replace LinkedIn? (VIDEO)


I want to answer someone’s question about what can replace LinkedIn as a tool for the job hunters. I also addressed this from the standpoint of small business owners and solopreneurs.

Summary

Someone asked me a question I thought would be useful one for people to hear the answer to because I think it is such a remarkably underutilized resource for people, whether you are in, job hunting mode, you are a business owner… Whatever it is, people need to start thinking a little bit differently.

The question I received from someone is, "What can replace LinkedIn?" People of gotten to the point where they think of LinkedIn as a stilted platform that doesn't feel comfortable and, although it remains the best platform for job hunters, for business owners, it's a little bit different and not as ideal as the alternative is.

What can be an alternative to LinkedIn whether you're a job hunter or a business owner, you are a solopreneur . . . Whoever you are? What can help in the business world differently than LinkedIn?

I think the real alternative to people despite the attitude that some have is Facebook. Facebook does a lot of things extremely well. I'm not the look at from a marketers perspective; I will look at from a user's perspective. From a job hunter perspective, you have the opportunity connect with people on Facebook that you find, perhaps on LinkedIn, perhaps you read about them, perhaps you meet a conference and start building a personal relationship and a business relationship, too.

Historically, Facebook was for your personal life and LinkedIn was for your professional life . However, I think the perceived limitations is now "self-perceived all self-perceived at this point and Facebook is trying to make inroads into the professional world in many different ways.

For example, they know me job postings available for people so if you're trying to fill a job, you can now posted on Facebook for free. More of you should be looking for those jobs on Facebook and applying to hiring managers or firms through Facebook rather than purely through LinkedIn.

Groups on LinkedIn are not great anymore.They have died the death that Yahoo and Google groups have died. They are just less effective in so many different ways.On Facebook, they are vital. There is a life to them that is very different. Facebook has encouraged this summary different ways.

I want to encourage you to start looking at Facebook as an alternative and start looking at Facebook as an alternative for building relationships with people who, right now, you don't necessarily know. Start building relationships with people you know, somewhat, but don't necessarily know well. Start cultivating the personal and begin extending it into the business.

For business owners, you already know that. Facebook allows you do a lot of different things to target users. I think in terms of the relationship. For example,If you are a solopreneur, there are groups that you can join on Facebook that will allow you to start networking With other business people in your area So that you can start giving and receiving referrals.

Why not do that? Why not start thinking of Facebook like an online Chamber of Commerce for you? If you are a solopreneur or a small business owner, you want to connect with others. If you think of Facebook is the place where you are constantly screaming, "Use my services,"You are going to blow it.No one wants to hear you say, "Hire me!"That's certainly true of job hunters.

Facebook is a relationship place. It's a place where you can cultivate relationships pretty easily so that people want to hear your views (that's certainly true service professionals) and they want to hire you.
