LinkedIn: New Power Moves To Boost Your Career Online And Offline – Part One
By Dean DeLisle
Are you stuck in a career rut? Are you looking for a new job and want to get an edge over the competition? Building a powerful network on LinkedIn can help give your career a boost, as long as you know how to use it correctly. Leveraging LinkedIn is about more than simply registering your name and occupation. Positioning your profile, making the proper adjustments to get found, and growing your professional network will attract the opportunities that count.
To build a powerful network on LinkedIn, there are some fundamentals to know before getting online.
First, you must know your destination. Ask yourself: where is your career going? Where do you want it to go? If you have a dream job in mind or want to work for a particular company, keep that top of mind as you’re building your LinkedIn presence. Use relevant keywords in searches as you are looking for that perfect job description and begin reaching out to people who have a career similar to the one you are looking for.
Next, inventory your network. Search your existing connections to see if you may already have people in your network that can help connect you to a particular company or specific job. Reach out to those people by sending them a message explaining your career search and asking if they may be able to help you. Leverage the network they have around them as well to make those important connections.
Now you should have all the tools you need to build a power network of all the right people with the right connections and experience to help you get to where you want to go. Connecting with the right people can quickly assist you in getting to your destination. Successful, career-minded people have a powerful network around them, so immerse yourself in that network and you will be on your way to a new or improved career.
