Have you thought about using LinkedIn to build your network lately?
If all you are doing is building a list of contacts, you are letting a lot of power go to waste. The truth is that LinkedIn can be the ambassador for you, both personally and professionally. With active, consistent engagement, LinkedIn enhances your visibility to key decision-makers in your field as you:
• communicate your successes
• become better known in your industry
• position yourself in your market
You already know that much of the job market, especially at the executive level is hidden from the general public and never appears on traditional job boards. It’s essential to be connected to key players in your field. Your personal brand statement will help you to:
• stay on top of what is happening in your field
• connect to new people to call for advice or introductions
• get invitations to events, meetings, interviews.
Great communication with your LinkedIn contacts can help you to be seen as a trusted advisor and thought leader in your industry. It’s a great way to meet others who share your values – people who may share your mission and purpose. Engaging in active networking before you are looking for a job positions you to tap in successfully to that hidden job market.
