1. Make Yourself Memorable While Networking
Networking is one of the biggest and most useful parts of climbing the ladder of success. It’s all about who you know! However, it’s more than exchanging business cards and email addresses. Successful networking guarantees that you’re remembered. So how do you do that?
I asked Christine Bronstein, founder of private women’s network, A Band Of Women to offer tips on connecting and being memorable when networking.
2. Clean Up Your Social Media Pages
94 percent of hiring managers use social networks as part of the recruiting process. 93 percent say they are likely to look at a candidate’s social profile.
Do you want a headhunter (or your next boss) to see everything that you have posted on your social media? If the answer is no, then you have some deleting to do!
3. Get On Camera
YouTube reaches more 19-34 year-olds than any cable network. No matter what field you are in, a video strategy is a way to define yourself as an expert and set you apart from a sae of potential hires.
*Start with a short video outlining your brand and company or your individual talents and skills. Post this video on to a YouTube channel and embed it on your business or personal sites, then share across social media
4. Go Broad & Deep
A good networker will follow and interact with her contacts and business targets on their social media outlets, but you also need to go deep to connect with those in your field (or the field you want to be in).
*There is a social network for every niche these days. Join them, interact, and convert those online friendships to real world interactions. You never know who might be the link to your next job.
