But today I got an email from one of our candidates thanking me for suggesting that she get to work on LinkedIn. I suggested she beef up her profile, get recommendations from past managers and co-workers, join an industry group and use the SEARCH function to find an insider in companies where she was applying. She took our advice, saw a job posted through a group, applied and started this week.
Doing a little digging, I found a fantastic blog post on Ten Ways to use LinkedIn to Find a Job. If you are looking for a job, READ THIS ARTICLE. If you are looking for new clients, vendor searches, insiders into a company you'd like to partner with, READ THIS ARTICLE. It's easy. It's ten steps. Who needs Kevin Bacon, anyway?
