I spoke with one of my colleagues yesterday and he made a great observation: many people entering this market have never used social and professional networking to find their next job. If they have, they may not know the etiquette, especially with the current market conditions. He asked if I could write in my blog about it.
I considered writing all that I know, but what I’ve learned over the years and the updates I’ve picked up over the past couple of months all are summarized by a very able writer, Tim Tyrell-Smith on his blog Spin Strategy.
So, instead of reinventing the wheel, I’ll point you to a few key topics and entries that I’ve found very useful in his blog:
- Networking Do’s and Don’ts
- Quick Tips for Job Seekers
- Job Search Strategy
- Are You a Member of the Employed Elite
- The 5 Keys to Successful Information Interviews
