Maybe it’s gut feel, but I’ve noticed many more new positions coming across my LinkedIn feed as of the last week or so.
I try to “like” all that I come across.
A few ideas for you:
1. If you’re not catching these or are only occasionally on LinkedIn, you can go to my profile, click on the “All Activity” and see those that I’ve come across. There will also be some other posts not job related mingled in, but I just did a quick check and 9 of the 10 “likes” were open positions.
2. If these open positions are not a good match, go to the company website (or company LinkedIn job page) and see what else they have open, there could be your golden ticket somewhere within.
3. And if you’re still not seeing much, then reach out to a few folks in the company, express overall interest, there may be something peculating behind the scenes that hasn’t been posted yet.
Something like: “Hi Chris, I see that you’re actively hiring for X, and while I’m not the best match for that position, if you hear of a position that is more aligned to Y, please let me know”.
And then keep in touch.
Yes, you’ll get ignored by some, so what?
Ignorance is bliss.
Stick and move.
