Want to learn some new and classic job search tips? This week’s summary has just what you are looking for. It includes new LinkedIn features and classic networking advice.
Job search tips come in two types: new and classic.
This week’s summary has some of both. The basics of job search haven’t changed much. You are looking for a job and companies have jobs.
No matter what age you are or level of job you are looking for, the reality is, referred job seekers are far more likely to get an interview and get hired than those that apply online.
In order to get referred, more people have to know about your talents. Additionally, the “right” people need to discover you.
So the question is, how do you get seen by more people? Instead of promoting you are “open to new opportunities,” share valuable information that attracts the “right” people to you. It’s sort of like Pull Marketing.

- Build relationships when networking
- Learn about new LinkedIn features for job search
- Penetrate the hidden job market
- Move the needle on your job search
- New Zoom features
