Simple Networking Ideas to Find a New JobJul 23, 2021
We’ve all heard that the best way to ﬁnd a job is through networking. While this is true, some of us just don’t seem to have that social-butterﬂy gene.
Here are some simple ways to let the world know that you’re ready, willing, and able to help their company.
Set a Facebook proﬁle.
Don’t use your personal proﬁle if you already have one. Set up a proﬁle speciﬁcally for your professional career. Post your resume and befriend everyone that looks like they might be able to help
Create a proﬁle on LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is like the professional version of Facebook. Use the tools to create a proﬁle and contact others who you already know on there. You never know who is connected to your friends and colleagues!
Always carry business cards.
You never know when you’re going to meet someone that might have the ability to help in your job search.
Blog about your profession.
You’ll attract people in the same ﬁeld and also demonstrate your expertise.
Follow blogs in the same industry.
Subscribe to the blog and leave comments. Ask if you can write some content for them. It’s another way to get your name and experience out in the public eye.
Let all your friends know.
You might think you don’t know that many people. But if you think about all the people your friends know as well, you’ll see the numbers climb rapidly. Tell everyone what you’re looking for; you might be surprised who can help.
Let everyone know.
Your neighbors, members of any clubs to which you belong, your mail carrier, the bus driver, and more could all be helpful. Don’t be bashful.
Get a Twitter account.
Follow everyone in your ﬁeld. Follow everyone you can in the geographic location you wish to work. Tweet away.
Have your elevator pitch ready.
You should be able to ﬁre off in 30 seconds who you are, what you do, and what problems you can solve.
Get a professional email address.
Looking for a new job is about as much fun as getting a root canal. The best solution is to use as many tools at your disposal to ﬁnd a job as quickly as possible.
There is someone out there looking for someone exactly like you; you just have to ﬁnd them. Use the ideas above and be creative; these are just the tip of the iceberg. Good Luck!
