Filed under: Networking, The Job Search Process — Larry @ 12:08 pm

Job search strategy not working? In her article at http://www.keppiecareers.com/2011/12/30/how-to-get-a-job-in-the-new-year/, Miriam Salpeter offers some tips that may help you to stand out from the crowd so you can win an interview, and ultimately, the job.

She suggests:

Narrow your list to your highest-priority targets

Get referred in

Do the unexpected.

Research all the people in the organization. Take that list and run it by your entire network to see if they know anyone who might know someone in this organization. Search every name against your LinkedIn database.
