Tips for Job Seekers
You want to stand out from the crowd. Here are some tips to help you get the attention of employers:
- Create a target company list. Find out everything you can about the company and then customize your pitch for each one. Use our Member Directory to start your search.
- Leverage both online and face-to-face communication. Even in
informal settings, think about how you can expand your network. Go to
lunch or dinner with colleagues or friends in the industry and strike up
a conversation about your job search and your target companies. You’ll
be surprised by the number of contacts your networks have. Take a look
upcoming events and attend a few to build your network.
- Prepare for the interview. You’ve got a call back! Be ready to
provide specific examples of the results you’ve achieved. Also develop
questions in advance that will help you make sure the organization is a
good fit for you.
- Follow up. Whether it’s after an interview, a lunch, or a new
introduction, reconnect to thank the person you met as well as the
individual who made the connection for you.
