Ways to Be More Visible On LinkedIn

If you’re using LinkedIn for your job search, there are two ways you can increase the chances of employers viewing your profile and hiring you.

An article by John Nemo in the Memphis Business Journal states that LinkedIn users can figure out which audiences they want to reach by targeting a few of those audiences.  Translation to job-seekers:  your audiences are employers.  Know what you have to offer in terms of skills, knowledge, and abilities, and then pursue some key employers who want those skills, knowledge, and abilities.

A second way to get noticed on LinkedIn, reports Nemo, is to “become … an expert on a certain type of service or product that appeals to clients in numerous industries.

A great example of how this can be done successfully is taking a look at high-level business coach and consultant John Hawkins.

Rather than targeting a few industries or audience types, he decided to dominate the “leadership” niche and appeal to a wide variety of audiences — from casinos to churches to companies and individuals — looking for leadership consulting and coaching.

“When you provide a service and you help people where they’re at, with what they need, versus what you think they need, all kinds of doors get opened and all kinds of people become interested,” Hawkins told me during a recent podcast conversation. “I’ve worked with casinos, auto manufacturers, schools, hospitals, churches and more.”

Why I Love the Interview Process

Why I Love the Interview Process. From ISEEK Interactive Blog

Why I Love the Interview Process

Posted on November 2nd, 2012Rachel VilsackNo comments

Some employers may dread the interview process as it takes their time and effort away from the day-to-day operations of their business. I, however, love the interview process. As a recent participant in an interview panel, I got the opportunity to gain insight into how job seekers approach the process and how they sell their skills and experience. Often I am pleasantly surprised with the poise of a candidate and his or her answers to a question. Sometimes I see where a candidate has room for improvement.

Here are a few interview tips based on recent observations:

  • When you set up the interview, ask who you will be interviewing with. If it’s a panel, get their names. You now have some powerful information. What can you learn about these interviewers? What do they do at the company or business you are applying to? Are they on LinkedIn or other social networking sites? Do you know anybody that they know? Use appropriate information or connections during the interview.
  • Bring a clean copy of your resume. Most resume-scanning or computer matching programs spit out an unformatted and, frankly, unattractive copy of your resume. Show the interviewer you care enough to bring your resume on a nice piece of paper. And you can include all the high-quality formatting, font, and graphics you want!
  • Make the clear connection between how your current or previous job responsibilities match the skills of the position you’re interviewing for. This is especially true for job seekers with limited or unrelated work experience. You may not have direct experience, but if you tell me how your skill set is applicable to the job you’re applying for, then you just did a better job than the candidate who told me only the mechanics of what they did on their previous job.
  • Research the company, the office you’ll be working for, the products or services they provide, and then use this information in your interview. If you can’t summarize the organization’s mission or describe the main products or services offered – you don’t have to be an expert on them, but be able to list them properly by name – then you didn’t spend enough time preparing for the interview.
  • When given an opportunity to ask questions, go beyond “what is your hiring timeline for this position?” Ask one or two substantive, probing questions instead. If you get me to think “wow, that’s a really great question!” then you will stand out against a candidate that just asks what a typical day is like on the job.
  • Please ask for the job! An interview is really a sales opportunity. You’re selling the employer on your skills and expertise. (And whether you think so or not, the interviewer is trying to sell you on their business.) Make your concluding comment your final sales pitch for why you are the best person for the job. I promise you that it demonstrates enthusiasm and effort.
  • Send a thank you note or email. Interview follow-up is important. Make sure your follow-up is concise, free of errors, and addressed personally to each of the people you interviewed with.
