Applying to online job postings alone is rarely successful, especially if there is any competition for that job. Sure, most companies require you to at least get in their system, but relying on their system to find you for an interview is a recipe for failure.
So if you’ve been applying to jobs over and over with no results, it’s time to change your approach.
Online job systems don’t hire you, people do. Connect with people!
Seek to answer these questions:
- Who are the decision makers?
- Who do I know in the company?
- Are there any alumni connections I can find?
The point is – find connections with people who can help you get to the next step.
Utilize any networking connections you have – social media, LinkedIn, family, friends, acquaintances from church or social groups, etc. You never know who will provide the help you need.
Even if a job isn’t open for a company you are interested in, it may still be useful to find people there to connect with. Many jobs are never even posted because they are already filled with people that they know!
